These miniature Globes are a fine Contemporary Edition of this French "1745 Globe Terrestre, with 100% accuracy..... rendered in paper on a 3.25" diameter Globe body....there is a small brass hanging ring at the North Pole, and a Brass finial at the South Pole (both in fine detail).
They were originally know in the 18th Century as "Pocket Globes".
These globes were produced some years ago, for sale in Museum Gift Shops...and the detail is simply outstanding!!
They would make great ornaments for your Xmas Tree or displayed in your cabinet of curiosities.....or they could be used as replacements on Scientific instruments that have lost their world globes.
I have several of these, and you can purchase one or more.
You will be delighted with the quality!!! I promise......
