The trianon globe measures 10.8 x 5.5". The globe features solid bronze hardware & a French finished rosewood base. Admittedly, Marie Antoinette wasn't remembered for her intellectual exploits. But during her time France sent expeditions around the globe. Scientists and explorers mapped landmasses and oceans, and recorded local flora and fauna. Undoubtedly a globe of some kind, probably similar to our Trianon, adorned, or perhaps dominated her library!
