On Top of the World Globe by Authentic Models

It must have felt like private travel. The passenger list was handed out before take-off. A well-known banker in seat 3A. The Prime Minister and his wife row 5. Greta Garo all the way in the back, incognito... Gracious conversation was an art. Aged clarets and Krug champagne. Real silver on starched linen. refueling in Athens, Amman or Aden, enjoying a corona or Chesterfield with the local station chief. Lobster cocktail, foie-gras, cheese and coffee with petit-fours. Travel the world in style... Replica of a 1950s travel agent globe. Super Constellation circling a 1930s original hand applied globe. Aluminum, hand buffed and polished.

***This globe is not current. It is a 20th century replica globe.***

Attention to detail is key. Authentic Models (AM) replicates the complicated ’gravure’ printing process, resulting in the sharpest lines, words and symbols even on the smallest size globe. All AM globes are made using original charts, researched by AM for their historical accuracy and visual appeal.

Centuries ago globes were made by gluing copperplate printed gores on a plaster finished papier-mache 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 C. Dutch painters who used globes to symbolize affluence, science, sohistication, even worldiness.

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