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.
