Lavenham 'Burr Wood' Globe
About The Globe
We are extremely proud to welcome the latest addition to our family of desktop globes, the Lavenham. The burr walnut base is designed by ourselves in partnership with Marshbeck Reproduction Furniture and is considered an extremely rare material, making this globe a real bespoke piece. Strips of Burr walnut are hand veneered onto the base with skill and precision.
The Lavenham – named after the town it was created in – features a 12’’ (30cm) diameter antique globe ball, which emphasises the bright and colourful political boundaries across the world’s landmasses. With over 4000 place names, this product is perfect for those avid explorers and those curious about geography. This particular globe also includes raised relief, allowing you to explore the Earth’s mountain ranges through your fingertips. The cartography is completely up to date, created by Kevin Dzurny.
This particular globe is made using traditional techniques which have been used for centuries, adding character to the globe and making this product perfectly imperfect. The Lavenham comes fully assembled and also includes a booklet on how to use, enjoy, and care for your globe.
