Not made in China
Why is this important?
Cartography that is printed on globes exported from China may show manipulated land borders and island territories that are not recognised by the United Nations and western countries. China subsidise globe manufacturing to make them cheaper to buy and this is used to increase China's 'soft power'.

We only supply globes with cartography that is printed in Europe or the United States which accurately reflect our world.

The Bradley Blue 12" (30cm) world globe is a welcome addition to the popular Bradley family of globes. The combination of pale (duck-egg colour) blue ocean colouring, a high quality meridian and a walnut wood veneered base make it ideal for any room setting. The globe ball is made using traditional techniques and features the popular raised relief, revealing the world's main mountain ranges in a tactile way. It has an up to date map with over 4,000 place names and pieces of information. The cartographer has included illustrations of historical vessels, together with names of explorers, the routes taken and the dates to add further interest to this beautiful globe. The Bradley Blue globe is mounted on an antique bronze style, die-cast metal meridian.

Other globes in the Bradley range include The Bradley Antique, The Bradley Junior, The Bradley Illuminated Antique and The Bradley Illuminated Blue.

This globe is assembled in the UK, using recycled and recyclable materials sourced from the UK and USA and comes complete with a booklet on how to use, enjoy and care for your globe. This globe is made in Corby, Northamptonshire, in the heart of the UK.
