Philips 13 1/2" Challenge Globe
Mid 20th Century
A lovely vintage globe on a square stepped base with chrome axis. It dates to around the 1950s. The globe carries the stamp "Philips' Challenge Globe. Diameter 13 1/2 inches. London Geographical Institute. George Philip & Son Ltd. 32 Fleet St. Printed in Great Britain".
It is in good condition for its age. It has been lightly cleaned to preserve its original aged patina and is ready for display. The base is in good order and the globe spins freely on its axis. There is some minor wear to the surface of the globe - some light scuffs and small areas which have rubbed over the years but nothing detrimental or untoward for a globe of this age.
