Authentic Models
Authentic Models, manufacturer of authentic antique reproduction World Globes. logoFounded in Holland in 1968 by Haring Piebenga,. Authentic Models has a 38 year history of delivering the most innovative, eclectic, and intriguing products available for retail. Their offerings include classic nautical gifts and home décor, historical reproductions and decorative arts, museum quality art and collectibles.

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. 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, a complicated production process, and a 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. Authentic Models globes offer history at your fingertips and highlight some of the world's most famous cartographers: Mercator, Hondius, Kaerius, and Vaugondy.

"For Authentic Models it is still very personal. We develop products because we love them, and we believe others will too...and our Cabinet of Curiosities continues to grow..."
