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 of Lebanon. Beyond that, it is also the main symbol of Lebanon's "Cedar Revolution" of 2005, along with many Lebanese political parties and movements. Finally, 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.


This timber has a unique perfume, grows to incredible dimensions & is a sought after by furniture makers for wardrobes & chests of drawers because the scent keeps cloth eating moths and insects at bay.


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.


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

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).

There is also the option of an "upside down globe" where Australia is up top!

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.
