I received my globe the day after ordering it. The globe is of excellent quality. The colours are pleasant and clear. I have the illuminated globe (with LED lamp) and it gives a lovely warm glow. I love the fact it has raised mountains. Very happy to have purchased this globe from JustGlobes. Review by C (Posted on 09/02/2020)
Good But Disappointed
Quality Expectation
I recently took delivery of this globe and as suspected the quality of the globe itself is outstanding.

However on delivery it turns out the bulb was broken and so i have had to get a replacement at further expense to myself.

Beautiful globe
Quality Expectation
Bought this for my husband's 50th and it's lovely. I got the LED bulb but found the colour was a bit cold so changed it for a warmer bulb, not sure what their standard bulb is like. It's got stunning detail and the book is very handy for taking full advantage of it. It's got a lovely antique look to it and with the light on it looks so nice in our sitting room.

Beautiful Lamp
Quality Expectation
My son has one of these on an old French dresser in his bedroom and it looks great. It has a lovely warm glow to it. Delivered next day as promised. Review by SherylK (Posted on 06/03/2018)
A perfect globe
Quality Expectation
I have wanted one of these globes for a long time, and mine arrived today. The delivery was very fast, and it arrived well packaged. It has kept me occupied for hours today already, and will be an excellent source for reference in the future. The globe is very well made and looks very very expensive. I paid the extra for the globe that lights up (LED) and so glad I did, as it looks great. I am very happy with my globe, and would fully recommend that you purchase this if you are undecided.

An excellent product
Quality Expectation
Bought for my son and family for Christmas so don't have their reaction yet but looks perfect for a very old family house. Hopefully the children will enjoy it as they grow up and become inquisitive about "the world" and the journeys shown. Review by Lizzy in North Yorkshire (Posted on 06/03/2018)

This globe is really excellent, bought for my son for a Christmas present so he hasn't seen it yet but I am sure he will be very pleased. Review by Margaret Bradshaw (Posted on 06/03/2018)
Just buy it
Quality Expectation
I bought this globe as a present, having been on several cruises our interest in where can we go next prompted this purchase.My partner really loves it. The intricate detail brings the whole globe alive, so much to look at,when lit because of the colours of it it blends into the room but calls you to it to find something new. The booklet is amazing, just flicked through at the moment but so much to learn. The price is fantastic for the product. Thank you for the pleasure it has brought, and the information it will provide for our future travels. Review by Karen Lewis (Posted on 06/03/2018)

Lovely first globe.
Quality Expectation
I'd wanted a globe for a long time and this fits the bill perfectly; went for the 1W LED bulb which gives a very pleasant glow while costing pennies to run. The globe has a nice antique look but is clear and easy to read; comes with a handy booklet too. Great service and fast delivery too! Review by Steve - Norfolk (Posted on 06/03/2018)

Great service bought for my wife's birthday on a whim, spoke with the team at just globes and they were extremely helpful and recommended an excellent globe. Only slight point is the meridian material although stated as metal feels quite plastic, not a major issue, otherwise an amazing globe! Review by Stuart McMillan - Scotland (Posted on 06/03/2018)
