Modelled from actual survey data, this little globe is at a scale of 1:170 million. The heights are greatly exagerrated to show the relief detail, but all mountain ranges are located exactly, and the heights are comparable. Islands and coastlines are carefully scribed, and the globe has been painted with metal oxides and fired to excess of 1200 degrees celcius, making the colour permanent.

The English Oak pocket case is finished with natural waxes on the exterior, and is lined with Celestial Star Chart of The Northern and Southern hemisphere skies. Handpainted in permanent watercolour, and sealed with many layers of lquer using centuries ole globe making techniques, each case is unique.
