Item Description

A very rare mid 20th Century 14" terrestrial globe by Philips.

This globe would have been made circa 1946 due to the absence of Israel and other notable geographical differences. Priced to reflect historical damage which has now been repaired.

Combined postage is always considered with multiple purchases. All items can be viewed and collected from my shop on Sheep Street, Stow-on-the-Wold, GL54 1AA.

All my items are sold 'as is'. Please contact me requesting a condition report PRIOR to bidding. If you require any more information or photographs, please contact me prior to bidding or buying. Remember that bidding is a commitment to buy based on the information supplied here as well as acceptance of my postage and packing costs.


I cannot insure items up to the sale value due to Royal Mail and UK Courier's insurance claim policies. If I needed to make a claim for damaged parcels I can only claim to the value of the COST of the item and not the SALE value. Due to the nature of my business, the difference in these values can sometimes vary greatly. I can not and will not be held responsible for either Royal Mail or any other Courier's failings. I do however send my items using a tracked service in all cases regardless of value.

If you as the buyer wish to insure your item for the sale value then I will obtain a quote and invoice you appropriately in the understanding that if the item is damaged or lost by the carrier it is your responsibility to pursue a claim. Please see Royal Mail's website for further details. You can also obtain the relevant forms from this link in the unlikely event of having to make a claim via Royal Mail.
I ask that all payments are made within 48 hours of auction end. All International payments must be made via Paypal or International bank transfer. If any UK buyers wish to make payment via a method other than Paypal, it's advisable to contact me before the auction ends.

On 05-Dec-13 at 13:03:45 GMT, seller added the following information:


There is a heavy ball inside this globe which may be there to balance it - I don't know. It rattles around inside the globe when moved so this could cause damage from the inside when in transit. Please bare this in mind when bidding if you require this item to be shipped. The globe is fragile and has been repaired therefore will be weaker than when it was produced.

The historical damage has been filled with a clay like material which is visible to areas of the globe. An immaculate example of a globe of this size and period would be worth a significant amount of money so its starting price reflects this damage.

This item has been priced to clear.
