A rare miniature terrestrial globe produced by Jules Lébègue, Paris, France, circa 1880. The globe measures 5.5cm diameter, 15cm overall height, mounted on a nickelled steel stand with a semi-circular meridian. The text is in English, the continents outlined in red, yellow and green. The overall condition is Very Good. The globe is well preserved with only light surface erosion in a few spots, and more noticeably at the poles where the axis has created wear. There is some darkening of the varnish, but the globe has suffered no indentations or undergone restoration.The nickelled steel stand has a little corrosion.
