The last year this globe was produced by Wilson & Sons. Both of Wilson's sons died in 1833, and this event necessitated a change in the company's management. In 1835 Cyrus Lancaster took over the business and signed his name to all the globes produced after that date. Four legged desk stand. Height from base to top is 18 inches.
