PHILIPS 'Challenge' 10 inch terrestrial globe, 1966

This is an excellent example of the classic table globe from the British company Philips, dated 1966.

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, which has been carefully cleaned, remains bright with vibrant colours. There is minimal marking or staining and overall it is in excellent condition. The base and mount have also been cleaned and polished and are likewise in excellent condition.

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