History Buffs Rejoice!
Gilles Robert de Vaugondy and his son Didier were the leading mapmakers in France during the 1700's. Didier was appointed geographer to Louis XV in 1760 and turned out some AMAZING maps. A faithful reproduction of the Vaugondy cartography, these globes would look elegant in any setting. (I particularly like them grouped in odd numbers in a bowl for a coffee table display.)
I have the following sizes available in both black and ivory:
small size (12cm): $9
medium size (14cm): $15
large size (18cm): $25
I also have mahogany wood stands that fit all three size globes. The stand retails for $18. It looks great on desks, bookshelves and mantels.
