key. All 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-mâché 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. Authentic Models globes offer history at your
fingertips and highlight some of the world’s most famous
cartographers: Mercator, Hondius, and Vaugondy.
