A few kind words...

"My globe arrived today! These are exquisite and worth the wait. Wow."

- R.B., Seattle, Washington, United States, February 2017

"It was lovely to meet you and Peter this morning and to see the studio and the guys working on the globes. We got at least some insight into how much hard work, dedication and skill that goes into each globe. They really are works of art.

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"

- P.T., Toronto, Ontario, Canada, January 2017

"Just a quick note to let you know that I opened the globe on Christmas morning and it could have not possibly have been more perfect.  It now sits in a place of honour at the centre of our enormous dining table and is absolutely STUNNING.  Thank you all so much for your beautiful work!!

Please give our regards to everyone involved in the making of such a stunning work of art.  Thank you all again!"

- B & E. H., Mullaloo WA, Australia, December 2016

"The globe arrived today, and I just now brought it home (I actually picked it up at DHL) and set it down. Simply beautiful, stunning, a work of art.

The finished globe is fantastic! I'm so proud of him for having the idea and researching to find your company which brought it to fruition. He told me how great it was to work with you. He appreciated bouncing ideas back and forth, and said that you gladly made any changes he wanted. We are all very impressed with everyone at Bellerby and hope to have occasion to do business with you again some day! Thanks again.

I will definitely send you guys some pics when we open it for real next month.  CAN NOT WAIT!

Thank you again, Jade!  You have been fabulous to work with :)"

"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."

-R.H., Malvern East, Australia, September 2016

- S.R.,Quincy, Illinois, August 2016

"Well! He loved it.  Even though I knew the size, it is LARGE in person.  So thankful we had double doors and a big library.

I also bought a beautiful magnifying glass to have near by so he can search and find all the custom illustrations.  It was definitely a hit with the whole family and a very unique gift for the man who is hard to buy for. "

And the case that it arrived in is about the coolest thing ever. Please thank everyone for the amazing work! My travel bucket list will undoubtedly grow now. I must start saving now so that I can buy the 36 or 50 cm next ;-)!

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
