Welcome This is our story


In 1991 Greaves & Thomas revived the traditional craft of globe making in the United Kingdom.

Modern Day Globes Created from the latest data available


Restoration Breathing Life Back


We are often asked if we restore old and new globes. Depending on the condition of the globe, the restoration process may include cleaning, repairing or replacing missing or damaged parts, and repainting or re-gilding. 

Art of Making Globes Our History


The earliest known terrestrial globe was created by the Greek geographer and astronomer Crates of Mallus in the 2nd century BC. It was made of solid bronze and was only about 10″ diameter.
