PHILIPS 'Challenge' 10 inch terrestrial globe, 1962

This is a very good example of the classic table globe from the British company Philips, dated 1962.

The globe is constructed from two pasteboard hemispheres with hand-applied composite paper gores, joined at the equator. It features the trademark Everite stepped black bakelite base with a chromed die cast meridian, and an aluminium time dial at the North Pole.

The map has been carefully cleaned and is bright with minimal fading and marking - overall the condition is very good to excellent. The base and mount have been cleaned and polished and are also in excellent condition.

Diameter 10 inches (250mm); overall height 315mm
