One of the many new options for the 50cm Britannia – inspired by our 80cm Galileo. This base has the same grand style – handcrafted in wood and now in a more compact size. This can also be crafted for a 65cm diameter globe. We simply call this style ’rounded leg base’ –
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 will work with us and have the opportunity to specify personalisation. Options for personalisation include hand drawn and hand painted illustrations, cartography edits (text edits to the map), as well as the colouring of the globe and style and finish of the base. The globe can also have a matte finish – or gloss as pictured here.
The 50cm sized sphere can also be in 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, 65cm, 80cm and 127cm diameter).
