The 36cm diameter Livingstone Desk Globe is based on the traditional Philips globe from the early twentieth century. A classic design where the globe spins on an axis.
The map on your globe will always be up to date to the time of making and each and every globe is made bespoke to order.
Our bases are hand turned and hand finished – there is a choice of Cherry Wood, Walnut, Oak, London Plane or Ebonised Hardwood in a variety of stains. If you prefer more natural wood or a darker stain just let us know. The base shown here is Cherry.
The brass pieces are made in our Derbyshire foundry and turned wooden washers complete the design.
The Livingstone is available in a wide range of colours along with a celestial edition. A good source for colours linked > Livingstone linked here.
This is Mint Cassini with a gloss finish – the other option being matte.
Your commission includes a hand engraved message on the brass arm that holds the globe and 20 text based edits to the map. Hand drawn and hand painted illustrations like the example here can be added at an extra cost. We can draw anything land or sea that you dream up!
