Two nice things happened on Sunday. One…. the sun came out and we were able to catch a tan on Church Street with a nice glass of wine. Two… a lovely family surprised the man of the house with a globe for his birthday. He was tricked off the streets of Stoke Newington and in to a darkened warehouse…. lights were flipped on and wallah! The one-of-a-kind 80cm globe highlights special places of interest to its new owners… we hope they have many happy years together!
This style of globe is yet to be named! Any suggestions? The globe itself sits on a rolled base made from hand-turned oak and hardwood, fitted with revolutionary bearings, allowing a fluid 360-degree rotating motion. Finished with immaculate attention to detail, the globe is hand painted with many layers of pigment, and strong varnish providing a deep colour and an enduring finish.
Thinking of giving that special someone a globe in the future? As with all Bellerby globes, each one is painted by hand in our London studio – so can be individually tailored to suit taste and requirements.
