16th Century Globe
The Authentic Models Mercator Globe on Stand is from 1541, making it a representation of one of the oldest globes on offer. It unites solid brass hardware that has been bronzed on a classic ebonised wood stand that has been hand-rubbed and French finished. Spin the globe, enjoy a touch of history and see the Old World through the eyes of explorers from the past. A wonderful piece of sophisticated decor, this globe could be considered a fantastic collector's item. Are you ready to step back in time?
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 and 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. Solid and still fragile, the finishing result is elegant and imposingly present.
