Pocket Globes

The heyday of the pocket globe was Georgian period England, from the early 18th century to about 1840. They were mainly made as novelty items for English aristocrats interested in geography and astronomy. Typically no larger than 3 inches in diameter, the miniature size of pocket globes no doubt added to their appeal as precious objects, which still holds true for collectors today. We can also provide custom display stands. Read more about the history of pocket globes.
