Bespoke globes

"...we have a small team of highly trained Globemakers, painters, woodworkers and cartographers, all leaders in their field. Together we create the hand made globes that Bellerby & Co. has come to be recognised for. It is born from a belief that we never compromise. From the wooden and metal bases, to the artwork, the painting and map-making, each piece is expertly crafted using traditional and modern globe-making techniques, and is lovingly produced in our North London studio; each piece is an individual model of style and grandeur and our globes are works of art in their own right."

  1. Impressive is an understatement, I'd love to have one but $1200 to $100,000 makes it impractical for something I'd only use to impress visitors. When I think back to school, the globe was used to point out general relationships, whereas detailed study went to maps which were more up to date with changes in borders and names.
    I wonder how many globes he has in production that are held up waiting to label the Ukraine.
