This is a wonderful, large roseglobe in a Russian variant. I attribute it to Hoare because the base hobstar is identical to many they used on their early work.
The variation in the russian pattern is mainly cased by the use of crosshatching and fans. Typically one or the other is used to fill in the buttons but on this globe, fans fill the buttons and additional fields have been added for crosshatching. The top rim is notched and the base is finished in an old-Hoare-style hobstar.
The globe is practically in perfect condition and measures 5 1/4″ tall and 6″ wide. The blank is very clear and the cutting is wood-wheel polished.
