 Authentic Models  creates and distributes a comprehensive collection of historical reproductions and unique home décor worldwide. The aim is to challenge the mind as well as the eye. No other company in the world offers reproduction antique globes and armillary of similar quality and affordability.  Attention to detail is 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.
