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 an 18th Century Vaugondy globe and is not intended to be used as a current reference source.

The simplified design of the renaissance is artistically crafted into this wrought iron Renaissance reproduction. The simple broad banded full ring meridian and wide horizon ring typify the emphasis on simplicity, symmetry, regularity of its parts, and the classical columnar style exemplify the geometric perfection of the design. The simple elegance of the period are faithfully reproduced in this renaissance stand.

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.
