A rare pair of 6½ inch table globes by Bale and Woodward supported on mahogany turned columns onto triform platform bases with bun feet, the terrestrial globe inscribed ‘A new terrestrial Globe, published by G.Woodward, London 1845.’ The celestial ‘Bale & Woodward new celestial globe.’
Information is very scant about Bale and Woodward.., from 1851-1855 Woodward is recorded as occupying premises at 5 Charles St, Hatton Garden, London.
He appears to have made barometers, thermometers, and terrestrial globes of 3,5 and 7 inch diameter in addition to the size we have here which is a little over 6".
Even less is known about Bale, who again, worked in London in the middle of the 19th century. He would appear to have been the provider, to Woodward, of celestial gores who's sizes correspond to his globes which would indicate at least an association if not a partnership. Both men were also associated with the firm of Samolavico, a provider of the usual range of meteorological instruments, as their name appears in the margin of extant sheets of printed and unmounted gores, 3 inch globes which were used extensively for masonic globes, usually mounted on tall gilt classical columns.
