The Authentic Models Library Globe is a classic Vaugondy French globe. No Renaissance library, reception room, or merchant’s office was complete without a large globe on a stand. Mapmakers and globe publishers issued new globes every year, keeping clients up to date on the latest discoveries and explorations. Authentic Models Library Globe has a 32 cm (12.5”) globe with floor stand in the classical form used over the centuries. It would be perfect for a sophisticated study or library.
Attention to Detail
Attention to detail is key. A complicated 'gravure' printing process is replicated, which results in the sharpest lines, words and symbols even on the smallest of globes. Centuries ago globes were made by gluing copperplate printed gores on a plaster finished papier-mâché core, and this application method has been resurrected by AM. This Library globe has been handmade with exact map reproductions in 12 sections to make one whole. It has a solid bronze, engraved meridian ring and a rich, classic wood floor stand that has been French finished to give it a beautifully aged, authentic look. The stand disassembles into two pieces, making it easy to ship. It is a truly beautiful piece of decor.
