One of the many new options for the 50cm Britannia – inspired by our 80cm Galileo this base has the same grand style handcrafted wood base in a more compact size. We simply call this style ’rounded legs’ – i know i know!
The colouring here is Gagarin which is painted using satellite imagery as reference so it truly is Earth from space.
Wood here is Walnut, other options being Oak, Cherry or Sapele in a variety of stains and finishes.
The globe can be moved to spin at different angles / spins within a hand engraved brass meridian.
As always each and every globe is made to order, you specify the personalisation like added illustrations or cartography edits as well as the colouring of the globe and style and finish of the base. The globe can have a matte finish or gloss as pictured here.
See one post back for the Albion style base where the globe spins 360 degrees in a fluid motion by hand – this style globe (the Albion) can be made in any size that we offer (23cm, 36cm, 50cm, 80cm and 127cm diameter).
