The Age of Exploration Globe is a detailed reproduction of a 1745 Vaugondy globe. With perhaps the most up to date cartography of its time, the Vaugondy captured the knowledge of earlier explorers and aided in the ongoing exploration of the period.

In harmony with its historical roots, the Age of Exploration globe is handmade using accurately detailed paper gores. At 3.25 inches in diameter, the globe is small and light enough to make an enchanting Christmas tree ornament. Add the optional globe display stand and you have created a striking historical display for your desk, credenza or bookshelf.

The Age of Exploration globe is part of the keepsake globe collection. Complete your collection of vintage globes with the GL032 Earth and Heavens combination and the GL000 Desk Globe Display Stand.

No matter how you choose to display the Age of Exploration globe, it is certain to provide hours of pleasant contemplation and interesting conversations with your fellow history buffs. Next time you need a break from the hassles of our modern world, escape with your very own Age of Exploration Globe.

Note:This globe is an authentic reproduction of a 1745 Vaugondy globe and is not meant to be used as a current reference source.

Unusual, beautifulI am so pleased with this globe ornament! It is gorgeous, it came so well-packed and in a timely manner, and the whole process was efficient. It is also fascinating to see what a map looked like before westward expansion - there is a vast nothingness west of the Mississippi. Also, most continents are there but out of proportion. I love, love this ornament. I am using it to make a mobile, with other small globes, for a world traveler. Written by Diane Spethmann on Fri 7 Jun 2013 4:57:06 PM GMT
