Description

Remember when you were younger and standing in front of a world globe it dawns on you for the first time that the big ball with nonsense shapes and irregular lines spinning on a skewed axis right there is, in fact, us. Our planet. Our home. Our third rock from the sun, perpetually spinning and rotating through space -Earth – in 3D.

Though we are not likely to ever really, truly grasp its scale, nor the scale of the space through which we float, a global map of where we live is always going to make for a mighty and majestic reminder of just how small we are on a global (or even cosmic) scale.

The world globes featured in the Vintage World collection use a modern map of Earth with an antique finish, complimenting the authentic style of the beautiful brass and wooden stands they spin on.

Partnering the terrestrial spheres are a pair of solid brass and timber Armillary Globes. Like their cousin, the Celestial Globe, Armillary globes were vital navigation tools of old sea captains and pirates, using the stars above and their relationship to the sun or Earth to chart their journey, not across but around the oceans and seas of the world. These highly collectable World & Armillary Globes by Vintage World are perfect gifts for globe-trotting adventurers and armchair travellers alike.

Unusual and unique gifts for birthdays, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Christmas or almost any occasion.
