Our collection of absolutely stunning globes span four centuries, from the Renaissance to the colonial era. They come in different dimensions and are mounted on a wide variety of wood and metal stands. All Globes are handmade from specially reproduced paper gores. Twelve sections are hand glued onto a plastic (small) or papier mache (large) sphere. Every Globe is a masterwork, a combination of superior technology from the era and the artistic drawing skills of a European cartographer.åÊ
