Authentic Models Terrestrial Globe with Compass
Product Code: AU0292
Terrestrial globe with compass base.
A nostalgic interior accessory, steeped in history, this distinctive antique-inspired globe is the perfect addition to add character in your study or lounge interior.
Inspired by the master-globe-makers of the early 19th century, this joyful discovery globe is a terrestrial replication of the original 1541 Mercator globe.
Elevated on a sturdy dark wooden base, a bronze-effect frame securely orbits around the rotating globe.
Attention to detail is crucial and so a meticulous gravure printed process is used, resulting in Authentic Models' signature pin point accuracy and artistic detailing.
Traditionally globes were constructed by gluing printed copper gores on plaster, with a papier-mâché globe core.
Authentic Models are celebrated worldwide for their ability to replicate this antique production process and this globe pastes 12 sections using the ancient gravure and gore technique.
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.
