PHILIPS 19 inch illuminated terrestrial globe, 1962

This is a large and impressive illuminated table globe from the British company Philips, dated 1962. The globe is constructed from a translucent (probably acrylic) sphere overlaid with 12 hand-applied paper gores. The base is cast aluminium with a gold hammered finish, and the meridian is chromed tubular steel.

The globe is currently in as-found condition and awaiting preparation. The map retains very good colour with minimal fading and loss. There is some slight lifting of the seams but this can be restored.
