1930's GEORAMA ILLUMINATED GLOBE

GEORGE PHILIP & SONS TERRESTRIAL GLOBE ON BAKELITE STAND

DSF0226 DSF0240

A rare survivor from the early 1930s, this illuminated 'Georama' Globe from the renowned cartographers & pulblishers George Philip's & Sons has seen better days but is still highly decorative. We estimate the date of manufacture to be early 1930s as 'Siam' and 'Persia' are named as countries, both changed to their present day incarnations in the mid 30's.

Individual sections (Gores) are stuck to a celluloid sphere containing the lightbulb, the globe stands upon a Bakelite quatrafoil plinth with the electric cable exiting in the centre. Due to the fragility of the paper gores we have made no attempt to dissasemble and re-wire the lamp as this may cause further damage and we feel the globe would be best preserved without the use of the lamp function. It does, however, still light up.

The condition is well worn with numerous areas of damage to the brittle paper, mainly where the gores meet (unfortunatley most of England /Wales have gone awol , Scotland & Eire still hanging on!).
If interested please enquire and we will list the areas of damage in more detail.
