globe is displayed on a classic desktop stand,
with appealing elegant proportions, and a luxuriant combination of bronze and ebonized wood.

The globe is named after a villa in the royal park at Versailles, France, belonging to Marie Antoinette. Although the queen wasn’t remembered for her intellectual exploits, 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 similar to Trianon, adorned her private library in Versailles.
