Imbued with a sense of history, these antique reproduction globe bookends hearken back to an age when individual craftsmen plied their trades and quality was a highly personal matter. Faithfully reproducing the original 16th century Mercator Terrestrial Globe as well as its contemporary Celestial Globe, this set empowers you to explore both the Earth and the Heavens. From the deep sheen of the lacquer finished wood, to the hand crafted Terrestrial and Celestial globes, no detail is overlooked. This uncompromising attention to detail is key to a high quality reproduction and Authentic Models is the acknowledged leader in antique globe reproductions.

The quality of these Terrestrial/Celestial combination bookends is evident in the thoughtful design. Utilizing a highly stable inverted “T” design, the bookends will unfailingly support your most cherished volumes. Whether you have one book or dozens, the placement of your book on the projecting metal tang ensures that both your book and your bookend will stay in place. Unlike most decorative bookends, with the Terrestrial/Celestial Globe bookends you will never worry about your books tipping over and knocking your precious books and book end to the floor.

Mounted securely to the solid wood base, the graceful riser and inclined axial mount provides not only a solid attachment for your globe but a highly decorative one as well. The bronze toned finials, with the matching oversize pole caps, hold the papier-mâché globes securely while avoiding any possibility of mounting damage.

Knowing that their creations were destined for the homes of the most refined, affluent, and well educated members of society, ancient globe makers went to great pains to ensure the visual appeal of their finished works. The Terrestrial and Celestial Globe book ends are a stunning example of some of the best results. These exquisite bookends are equally at home whether supporting a traditional cloth bound book or nestled against a hand stitched leather volume.

If you have been searching for the perfect accent to proclaim your refinement, or if you are simply enamored with history and beauty, this 16th century Terrestrial and Celestial Globe bookend combination may well be the perfect solution. Add the perfect touch of understated sophistication without breaking your budget!
