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 meant to be used as a current reference source.

The skills of the blacksmiths from the Baroque era are legendary. They applied their art to churches, to the stairways and railings of mansions, to trade signs and a myriad of other ornamental and practical creations. We love the graceful curls and curves so popular in the Baroque decorative tradition. Contrasted and offset by the austere metal rings used to cradle our historical globe, they create a focal point in a well thought out and planned home decor.

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.

Due to the size and weight of this item it ships via Motor Carrier only. The customer is responsible for making arrangements to unload the shipment from the truck.
