GEOGRAPHIA 8 inch terrestrial globe, circa 1962

This is a very fine example of the popular table globe from the British company Geographia. It can be dated to circa 1962 as Jamaica is independent (1962) but Malaya is not yet Malaysia (1963).

The globe is constructed from a pasteboard sphere with hand-applied paper gores. There is minimal marking and the warm golden tones are complemented perfectly by the dark green bakelite base (one of the rarer colours) and chromed meridian.

The map has been carefully cleaned and the base and meridian have been polished. Overall the globe is in excellent vintage condition.

Diameter 8 inches (200mm); overall height 310mm
