Authentic Models Library Globe
Product Code: AU0293
Antique Vaugondy globe on tripod wooden stand.
A distinctive addition for the study, the Authentic Models Library Globe is an opulent statement of old-world style.
Steeped in history, it is elevated from a wonderful antique finished wooden tripod base and celebrates a true likeness to the original Vaugondy Globe.
Meticulously crafted by skilled artisans, the globe is created using a traditional gravure and gore technique.
The iconic Vaugondy Globe originated from the father and son Parisian map makers of the 1700s, Gilles and Didier Robert de Vaugondy.
Didier was appointed in 1760 as the honourable geographer to the French ruler King Louis XV making this gorgeous globe fit for a King.
Artisan crafted with meticulous care by skilled craftsmen, each item is unique and slight variations in appearance are to be expected and celebrated as no two items are exactly alike.
