Desktop Globes With Stands Made In Tasmania

c1900. Pair of metal globes printed in colour, mounted with removable brass rings on timber stands, 5.7 x 15.6 x 15.6cm (each). Minor crazing, wear, discolouration and oxidation to globes, some wear to stands.

These globe stands, designed to resemble larger floor-standing globes, are attributed to Tasmanian Thomas Hinton (Aust., 1857–1933) whose career included working as an engine driver in the Tasmanian midlands. The pre-made globes, later mounted in brass rings, are removable from their slots in the base in order that the southern portions of the globe may be inspected. Provenance: descendant of Thomas Hinton, Tasmania.
