PHILIPS 10 inch terrestrial globe, 1965

This is an exceptionally well preserved vintage globe from the renowned British globe maker Philips, showing principal physical features and the political map of the world as it was in 1965. It is further distinguished by its rarity; while 12 and 13.5 inch physical globes are relatively common, this is the only 10 inch example that we have ever seen.

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 in outstanding condition, retaining full colour with no fading or loss and minimal marking. The base and mount have also been cleaned and polished and are in excellent condition.

Diameter 13.5 inches (343mm); overall height 460mm
