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.

Classic charm. One of only a very small number of globes that can still boast a hand-covered map, the Statesman globe is available in either blue ocean or antique ocean. This 20" diameter illuminated globe is mounted on a striking hardwood base, turned by Chicago-based wood carver, Henry Krasuski, and finished in a rich walnut colour.

Classic design details and anodized engraved meridian make the Statesman floorstanding globe an appealing addition to any traditional decor.
