"My world has arrived yesterday. Everything is perfect. 

It goes beyond my expectations. You people do a really great job. 

Thank you and long life to Bellerby&Co. 

Have a nice day."

- G.L., PAU, France, March 2018

"Finally having some time to explore the Globe. 

I just love it, a wonderful piece of art. Our selected trips show up very nicely and bring back such joyful memories. 

Thank you very much for everything. It was worth the wait."

- M.A., Glendale, California, USA, March 2018

"My outstanding and geographically sublime globe arrived today.

Please pass on my sincere thanks to Mr Bellerby and the artisans who fabricated this globe.

Thank you especially Jade for the personal interest you have taken during the gestation of my order and now that it has arrived in Sydney I am most pleased."

- M.C., Sydney, NSW, Australia, March 2018

"Dear Jade, Peter and everybody else involved in this piece of art. We  just received the magnificent Globe that took us so long to develop together. It was quite 1 year of discussions, drafts and emails. Now it is here, at the library, which is the place where we plan our trips. Congratulations for such a perfect work. You are brilliant!"

- M.C.& P.S., Paarl - South Africa, February 2018

"I finally opened the huge package, and found your greatly made globe! We actually also like the huge box and keep it in our house. :-)

I love all the details, the personalizations and illustrations are exactly like discussed. It's quite hard to find the right words. I'm sure in time this globe will have an eye-opening impact for me and my family, like a crystalisation point. My four year old son (like his dad) is very impressed from its huge size, and the 360 degree spin. I found a great spot for the globe on my desk in my small library and study room.

I'd have loved to gift this globe to my own father as a birthday present, but he died several years ago (he would turn 80 in a couple of months). He loved to travel, to see the world in all its differences and similarities. So it's up to me to tell my kids his and my own stories about our world. Thank you and your team for this unique symbol of inspiration for me and my family."

- A.L., Gräfelfing, Germany, February 2018

"The globe has arrived in one piece and has been installed safely in the library and looks great. Please thank your artists for a great looking globe that will bring many years of pleasure to our household."

- A.T., Dubai, UAE, February 2018

"‘tis here!!! And it’s everything I had hoped for! Thank you so much, and please convey my utter delight to Peter, and to all the craftspeople at Bellerby and Co who helped create this wonderful piece of science and art. I’ve seen a myriad of globes over my career, from the Vatican museum in Rome to the Galileo museum in Florence, and a thousand antique shops in between. But none come close to the exquisite detail you’ve created for me. I just love it, and know I will ever do so."

- M.B., Taringa, Queensland, Australia, January 2018

"That transport box is a very good idea and also looks very good. You should have seen all the people in that huge customs hall admiring this globe - most had never seen one.

Sorry that you people might leave the EU. We badly need perfectionist companies like yours!"

- H.B., Kathmandu, Nepal, January 2018

"Just a brief note to say that I love my new globe! Please will you tell Leo that it looks great in my office at home."

globe! It is exactly like we hoped it would be:

the color and matte finish on the oceans and the land

the lettering and placement of locations important to us

the engraving on the meridian

the ships we requested

the sturdy, yet elegant oak stand

right on down to the sturdy shipping container keeping it safe on it's trans-Atlantic journey!

It is absolutely beautiful, and we appreciate the efforts of each and every one of you!"

Thank you for working with me on this project. You were so easy and pleasant to deal with!"

"A quick note to let you know that the globe has arrived today. The packaging (case) is superb and a perfect complement to the quality of the globe. I could not be happier with every aspect of the globe. Everything is exactly as I'd requested. The quality is stunning. I'm also pleased that it's larger than I was expecting - always hard to judge until you see first hand. I may still invest in the larger desk globe sometime in the future but this 'mini' globe will give me hours and hours of pleasure. As a Geography graduate of several decades vintage I could not think of a more appropriate treat for myself. Please convey my thanks and admiration to everyone responsible for the creation of my globe and my sincere thanks to you for keeping me informed at every step of the process."

- P.N., Los Altos Hills, CA, USA, April 2017

"The long awaited mysterious package finally arrived this afternoon….a heavy white courier box, and inside, a smart black and aluminium carry case like the one’s used by roadies to take equipment. Intrigue is still building…then, to open and see an finely crafted globe, so beautifully painted like a matt watercolour, nestled inside the foam casing: WOW!

I lifted it out (has a very solid weight to it) and placed it on the sleek aluminium base and saw the touching inscription you wrote at the bottom. It glides, in a very pleasing way, on the smooth ball bearings so the world can be placed in whatever orientation you like.

Hands down, the most unique gift we have ever received, and one we will treasure forever. The artisanal nature of this object touches me further, and now, having looked up the company and watched their video, a whole new dimension is revealed to me of the love and passion behind this one man’s quest for excellence in this craft."

We have just unpacked ours and put it in place in the lounge. It looks stunning. P. has taken  the magnifying glass out and the detail in the illustrations is amazing.

I said to Peter that I have always wanted a globe since I was a  child and loved going into Stanfords in Covent Garden to look at them but was so disappointed with them when I went there last year.  Now we have one that is truly wonderful and that tells a story. I can't stop smiling"

"Many of the 700 people {at the party} came up to have a close look at it in the box and were mightily impressed, especially with the personalised aspects. G's wife volunteered to me that the colour was perfect, 'much better than blue' and would match anything in their home. So we got that right and I thank you again for your good advice in that regard! And they loved the plane."

- A.D., Sydney, Australia, September 2016

"It is even more magnificent than I expected. I showed DG and a small number of close colleagues this evening, who were all ecstatic about it. We love the choice of colour and shading, and of course the small plane. There is no doubt the retiring G will love it when we present it at the farewell staff function next Thursday afternoon. It is a wonderfully beautiful work of art with fabulous fine detail all over the globe. He will enjoy finding all the places he visited in claret.

Thanks to you and your team for a special gift for us to present and also for all your many emails and quick responses to my numerous queries over the past few months. Bellerby & Co is clearly a terrific place to work and be part of. I would love to buy one of these for myself one day – perhaps a future Father’s Day gift (I’ll speak to my kids about it)."

- A.D., Sydney, Australia, September 2016

"Globe is terrific - my son is very excited and it truly will be something he will keep forever as well as a fun and educational tool (nice to have something that is not a computer etc).

I haven't been back so haven't seen it in person - but I understand the delivery process was simple and the packaging was excellent (and will be put to good use too).

Thank you Jade to you and your team for helping us with this project. The entire episode was interesting, engaging and fun and well worth the wait."

"We have received and placed our wonderful globe that you and your artisans so carefully crafted.  It is magnificent and we love it.  Thank you for your hard and expert work, and please extend to your team our gratitude.  It is the stately centerpiece of our map room, which also contains original maps by Mercator, Herman Moll, Aaron and John Arrowsmith and George Vancouver.  I have attached a few photos of the situation, but none do it justice.  We admire your globe constantly and are proud stewards of this precious heirloom.

Many thanks for engraving the base so handsomely and for your careful packaging.  It made the trip to the Wild West Coast unscathed. 

We look forward to further association with Bellerby & Company.  I'm sure we'll have another project!”

"Let me again compliment you for really creating something that has the same kind of addictive quality as an Apple product; this thing practically forces me to constantly spin it. It's really cool that somebody bothers to keep alive artisan skills like this, updated to the modern world -- I have been wanting a globe for a long time, but they're either all antiques or mass-produced junk, like you yourself noticed. As a software "craftsman" whose products are all abstract but where quality requirements are stringent, I just love something this tangible. "
- N.E, Finland
