The Authentic Models Terrestrial globe with compass is a beautiful little globe on a compass stand set in brass and wood. The globe itself is a copy of a 1541 Mercator globe, and could be used as an interesting piece of home decor in a sophisticated gentleman's office or study.
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 very small globes. Many years 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 Authentic Models. 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.
World Leader in Antique Globes
Authentic Models are a renowned leader in antique globes, and no other company in the world offers authentic reproductions of similar quality. The globes span four centuries, from the Renaissance to the colonial era, and highlight some of the most famous cartographers of all time; Mercator, Hondius and Vaugondy. All globes have been sourced from European archive collection originals, researched by AM for their historical accuracy and appeal.
