Authentic Models is the renowned leader in antique globes. No other company in the world offers authentic reproductions of similar quality and affordability.

Attention to detail is key to a high quality reproduction.

Authentic Models replicates the complicated ‘gravure’ printing process, resulting in the sharpest lines, words, and symbols even on the smallest size globe. All Authentic Models globes are made using original charts, researched by Authentic Models for their historical accuracy and visual appeal.

Centuries ago globes were made by gluing copperplate printed gores on a plaster finished papier-mâché core. Given the limited technology available at the time, the complicated production process, and the multitude of specialists involved, it was logical that only the very rich could afford to own globes. This is illustrated by 17th Century Dutch painters who used globes to symbolize affluence, science, sophistication, even worldliness. Our globes offer history at your fingertips and highlight some of the world’s most famous cartographers: Mercator, Hondius, Kaerius, and Vaugondy.

The globe in this composition is an authentic reproduction of a 17th Century Hondius globe and is not meant to be used as a current reference source.

The skills of the master craftsmen who created the original composition are evident in this authentic antique reproduction. The intricate turnings decorating the base and column glow with a lustrous, rich, dark finish. The simple copper toned, metal, semi meridian provides the perfect color complement to both the wooden base and the reproduction globe, bringing all three elements together in perfect harmony. If your home or office décor features antique furnishings, you will find the Hondius globe with its wooden stand provide the perfect accent for table top display.

Note: As with all of our authentic, antique reproductions, this globe is intended to be displayed and viewed for its artistic value rather than as an accurate scientific or cartographic reference source.
