Antique Philips Terrestrial World Globe

MARC KITCHEN-SMITH
A Philips 12" terrestrial globe on a particularly elegant cast iron base with ball and claw feet.

Dating from the early part of the 20th century, the globe features country names and borders existing post-First World War but prior to 1932 (after this date, Siam - as seen on this globe - was renamed Thailand).

There is an historic repair to the metal meridian bar, and an old stain to the globe surface, but otherwise in good condition for its age. A highly decorative piece for a gentleman's library. Width given is for the base.

Dimensions: 

  • H: 52cm (20.47in)
  • W: 23cm (9.06in)

Period: 

c.1920s

Marc has been successfully dealing in decorative antiques for over 15 years, fuelled by his lifelong passion for artefacts of the past. His workshop, a converted Methodist Sunday School, is located on the edge of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall.

He successfully mixes styles and periods to create his own unique collection of ‘delightful objects’. Good design, craftsmanship, colour and an age-worn patina all play their part in his discerning approach to buying. His selection of stock is often based on its aesthetic appeal rather than its age, and he loves to find items that have a story to tell.

Visits to Marc’s workshop and stores can be arranged by appointment.
