Philips 12 inch Terrestrial Globe on a turned ebonised stand. This desktop globe dates from 1920-1930. The colour is good, aged but retaining clarity. In one main area, the paper has been rubbed through to the base (see photograph) the rest of the condition is typical of its age, minor discolouration where the gores join and occasional small nicks to the paper. The ebonised stand is particularly attractive, excellent quality ebonising on hardwood with golden tones where the surface has naturally rubbed through to the wood.
