The Livingstone



The 36cm diameter Livingstone Desk Globe is based on the traditional Philips globe from the early twentieth century. A classic design where the globe spins on an axis. The map on your globe will always be up to date to the time of making and each and every globe is made bespoke to order. Our bases are hand turned and hand finished - there is a choice of Cherry Wood, London Plane Wood, Walnut or Oak - we can also do an Ebonised Hardwood in a variety of stains. If you prefer more natural wood or a darker stain just let us know. There is a separate listing for a solid Aluminium base as well as an option from this dropdown. The brass pieces are made in our Derbyshire foundry and turned wooden washers complete the design. The Livingstone is available in a wide range of colours along with a celestial edition.
