No other company in the world offers reproduction antique globes of
similar quality and affordability. Attention to detail is key. All our
globes are made using original charts, researched for their historical
accuracy and visual appeal. Centuries ago globes were made by gluing
copperplate printed gores on a plaster finished papier-māché 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 18th C.
Dutch painters who used globes to symbolize affluence, science,
sophistication, and even worldliness. Our globes offer history at your
fingertips and highlight some of the world's most famous cartographers:
Mercator, Hondius, and Vaugondy.
