16th Century Replica
The Authentic Models Navigator's Terresterial Globe is a beautiful replica of a medium-size 16th Century Mercator globe. It has been mounted on a classic library desk stand of hand-turned cherry wood, of a style and design found in many originals that are now exhibited in science and maritime museums. A wonderful momento of the age of exploration, this globe is highly decorative. It would look lovely in a sophisticated library or study, as an exquisite piece of decor.
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. The paper zodiac band circling the equator was originally drawn by Mercator himself. Centuries ago globes were made by gluing copperplate printed gores on a plaster finished papier-mâché core, and this application method has been continued by AM. All globes are handmade from specially reproduced paper gores. Twelve sections are hand glued onto a pastic (for small globes) or papier-mâché (for large globes) sphere. The Navigator's globe has a bronze meridian ring mounted with a small bronze pole circle and pointer.
