Description

This vintage world globe features a modern map of Earth in antique brown tones. The nickel finish stand gives this piece an art deco feel. For birthdays, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Christmas or as a unique gift for almost any occasion, our desk globe collection are popular customer favourites.

As one of the most ancient scientific instruments, the earliest terrestrial globes are believed to have originated in Greece in the 3rd century BC. Since then these models of our planet, Earth, have captured imaginations through the generations.

Remember when you were very young and standing in front of a world globe? That moment when it dawned on you for the first time that on that spinning ball with strange shapes and names, you could locate a tiny dot that represented where you lived. From there your imagination started to travel and wonder.

Partnering the world globes are our armillary spheres. Like their cousin the celestial globe, these were vital navigation tools for 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.

Our highly collectable vintage globes and armilla make perfect gifts for globe-trotting adventurers and armchair travellers alike.

Disclaimer: All of our items are REPRODUCTIONS, handmade by master artisans who employ techniques and traditions that are often centuries old. As they are handcrafted, no two items will be identical and some natural imperfections are to be expected. These are not product flaws. Instead, they are precisely what make these pieces unique, extraordinary and beautiful.
