The Albion features the same innovative roller bearing mechanism as our other desk globes permitting 360 degree rotation in all directions.
This base is made from hand-turned Oak. The grain is straight, with a coarse, sometimes uneven texture. It can have an irregular or interlocked grain depending on growing conditions of the tree which makes each piece truly unique.
This base looks great with all colours of globe - both terrestrial and celestial (click for a PDF on all colours). Each globe is hand-painted and will have a matte finish.
You can request a light / natural finish or a medium finish to bring more warmth to the base colour. The base can be made with or without the little metal feet. Without you will have "invisible" rubber feet.
This style of globe & base is also available in 36cm, 50cm, 65cm, 80cm and 127cm diameter.We ship worldwide from our London studio.
