Authentic Models are leaders in antique world globe reproduction and this collection sees many exquisite designs brought to life under their influence, including revolving globes and floor standing alternatives. The art of globe mapping thrived during the age of travel and exploration when the great voyagers of the world located new horizons and charted their discoveries for countries to lay claim to.

These earth globes are available in a range of small and large sizes, some on stands and some without, offering spectacular depictions of the world atlas in varying shades of colour and detail.
