Vintage Small ‘Planet’ Globe by Geographica with Stepped Bakelite Base Circa 1950s.

Globes have to be one of our favourites things here at Absolutely Nice HQ. Their colours, functionality and craftsmanship tick all the right boxes. If you search for ‘Globe Making (1955)’ in YouTube there are a couple of amazing videos by British Pathé well worthy of a watch.

Before a time when you could just type in a location on a computer and see every nook and cranny at street level, you had to rely on your trusty globe to see where Burkina Faso or Azerbaijan were.

With a lovely rounded stepped bakelite base, this circa 1950s 8″ ‘Planet’ globe by Geographica of London, would be a beautiful addition to any home, study or office.

Measures approximately 31.5cm tall and 20cm wide. In general good condition with wear commensurate with age and use, including some marks, stains and small scratches as photographed.

All of our prices include VAT, please get it touch if you require a VAT receipt.
