About Bellerby & Co


Bellerby & Co. are artisan globemakers based in London, England. The company has its roots in my search for a globe suitable for my father’s 80th birthday.

Unhappy with everything I found on the market I set out to make one myself. Before long the 3 month project had morphed into 2 years and swallowed up more capital than I will ever know!

It is a constant source of pride to receive feedback, often in the form of personal letter from so many of our customers (see our testimonials page).

It reminds me how rare it is these days to commission something, that both allows you to have your own input on how it is made (often to the level of sending in a pencil drawing which we turn into a stand), and some which by virtue of it being entirely handmade and hand painted is truly one of a kind.

Quick Delivery Options

We will be making a few 22cm diameter globes each month in the most popular colours - available for instant purchase (shipping within days). Any colour listed by name without a note after is available for immediate delivery.

You will see some options that say XMAS. These are globes offered for purchase that are being made and painted right now and will ship to arrive to you before the holidays.

The 'Quick Delivery Option' is the perfect option for anyone wanting a 22cm Mini Desk Globe without any added personalisation to the map - and without the wait you will usually find with all other commissions (we are usually fully booked between 3 - 6 months ahead).

Your order includes a personalised engraving on the disc within the base. You see this when you lift the globe from the base and it is perfect for a name, date, favourite saying or short quote. We will be in touch to confirm the engraving you want by email.

Once you place your order we will be in touch to confirm your choice of base wood. Options at this price are Walnut, Oak, or London Plane Wood. The Walnut base can be in the thicker 'Standard' style or the slimmer 'Albion' style.

The globe spins 360 degrees in a fluid motion by hand and can be easily lifted off its base.

The price includes shipping worldwide - your globe will be shipped in a bespoke flight case, tracked and fully insured.

If you do want to add personalisation to your globe - like hand drawn and hand painted illustrations - please place your deposit via the other categories in our 'Collections' or get in touch with [email protected] for more information on current shipping estimates.


A good source for all colours and all base options on the 22cm Mini Desk Globes linked here (click to view). You can also see the larger sizes - the Albion 360 & larger desktop globes are linked here (click to view).


We have a very limited amount of 36cm diameter 'Quick Delivery' options available as well in 'The Albion 360 & Larger Globes' section.

Please email [email protected] to receive more photos, base and colour options as well as to discuss the engraving and exact shipping estimates.

Place Deposit - Choose Colour & Base Later

Because of the lead times between placing an order and delivery... this is the best option if you want to ensure the earliest delivery time possible - but have time to finalise your choices on colour, base and personalisation.

We will be in touch to run through options and help you design your globe exactly as you'd like it.

You will have up until 3 months before your quoted delivery day to finalise and we will remind you as deadlines approach.

* The simplest and lowest priced colours are Cool Blue, Cobalt, Olive, and Turquoise - these have the least amount of detail in the painting. Next are the colours like Prussian Blue, Glacial Blue and Mint Green which have more detailed land or sea shading. Priced highest are Cassini (where each country is shaded a different colour) and Gagarin (looks like Earth from space).

Standard woods being Oak, London Plane and Walnut. Other choice being the more exotic woods and metal which are priced higher.

Examples shown on this listing are Mint Cassini and Glacial Cassini with added personalisation which is not standard on all globes - these are just some examples of the many ways you can create something truly one of a kind.

Please get in touch regarding any questions on colour options, base options and to discuss personalisation and customisation.

Included in the commission are 10 cartography edits. These are text-based edits. This includes highlighting special places in a differing colour, ie. changing Paris to red, changing the marker, ie. Paris is marked with a heart instead of a circle beside the wording or adding in places that might not otherwise be on the map, i.e. a small town or village that is not already on our cartography. All capitals and major cities are on -

We can also add illustrations. Anything can be drawn land or sea as long as it fits, smaller areas being London & places like NYC, Switzerland etc… where an illustration would only fit on the coast rather than on land.

Illustrations are usually £20 each and are hand drawn and hand painted.

If you choose to have personalisation we mock that up for your approval before it is finalised on the globe.

Also included is an engraving, the base holds up to around 60 characters on a circular disc in the base. You see it when you lift the globe from its base and it’s perfect for names, dates or a short quote.

Care instructions : Please do not keep your globe in direct sunlight - dust with a clean dry cloth.

Each globe is made bespoke to order, for short time frames ask us about our gift card options.

Please email [email protected] to receive more photos, base and colour options as well as to discuss personalisation and shipping estimates.

Shipping will be applied to your final invoice.

London Plane Albion

Locally sourced London Plane wood. Each piece has been hand selected by Peter Bellerby and has a known story which is pretty special. We recommend staining it quite dark as pictured, but the naturally light wood can be stained to your preference.

London plane is a tree ‘invented’ by the Victorians in Kew Gardens (oh weren’t they clever) by hybrid breeding species to enable the resulting variety to thrive in city environments (pollution and root compacting). The trees were originally planted in London’s Royal Parks, and subsequently found a home in New York both in parks and streets - as well as Australia in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.


It is therefore not found naturally in woodlands, so it has a limited supply. The UK had a glut of supply following the devastating (famously downplayed by the met office) storm of 1989, and then a further oversupply following the 2012 Olympics and the resulting clearance of Hackney Marshes.


Our current supply comes from the clearance around Euston station to enable a new station to be built to house the HS2. We have bough several of these trees in their entirety which is allowing us to have the wood dried to the correct size (allowing for some planing), thus reducing waste as well as allowing larger pieces of wood to make our bigger rotational bases from one piece. Amazingly some of this wood, which was planted in the early C20th contains pieces of shrapnel from WWII which embedded inside during The Blitz.

This base looks great with all colours of globe - both terrestrial and celestial (click for a PDF of all colours). Each globe is hand-painted and will have a matte finish.

The commission includes a personalised engraving and 10 cartography edits, we will be in touch with more details after you place your order to discuss.

Part of our Albion collection, this base features the same innovative roller bearing mechanism as our other desk globes - permitting a 360 degree rotation in all directions.

This style of base is also available with a 36cm, 50cm, 65cm, 80cm and 127cm diameter globe. The base can either be fitted with polished aluminium feet as pictured or finished with "invisible" rubber feet.

The darker colour of the wood makes the colours of the globe really pop. It suits both a modern home as well as a home with darker wood pieces.

Each globe is made bespoke to order, for short time frames ask us about our gift card options.

Please email [email protected] to receive more photos, base and colour options as well as to discuss personalisation and shipping estimates.

The Cedar of Lebanon Albion

The Lebanon Cedar is mentioned several times in the Old Testament. Hebrew priests were ordered by Moses to use the bark of the Lebanon cedar in the treatment of leprosy. Solomon also procured cedar timber to build the Temple in Jerusalem. The Hebrew prophet Isaiah used the Lebanon cedar as a metaphor for the pride of the world, with the tree explicitly mentioned near the end of Psalm 92 as a symbol of the righteous.


The Lebanon Cedar is the national emblem of Lebanon, and is displayed on the flag and coat of arms. Beyond that, it is also the main symbol of Lebanon's "Cedar Revolution" of 2005, along with many Lebanese political parties and movements. Lebanon is sometimes metonymically referred to as the Land of the Cedars.


We have hand-turned a small batch of bases for our 22cm Mini Desk Globes - each piece will be unique. Cedar wood is very prized for its fine grain, you can expect a light to medium brown heart and a strong scent.


The Albion features the same innovative roller bearing mechanism as our other desk globes permitting 360 degree rotation in all directions. Polished aluminium feet finish the base (optional) along with our personalised engraved disc.
