The Vaugondy, Father and son, were the official mapmakers Louis XV, called the Beloved.
Their sofisticated globes decorated the libraries and salons of Versailles and The Louvre in Paris.

No Renaissance library, reception room, or merchant's office was complete without a large globe on a stand.
Mapmakers and globe publishers issued new globes every year, keeping clients up to date on the latest discoveries and explorations; new trade routes, new ports of call... even new continents!
This library globe with floor stand is the classical form used over the centuries.

French polish The base of this globe is a classical french support; he excels in the visual appeal of its proportions.

He seduces with its rich and perfect match of ebonized wood and bronze.
The wood has a french finishing (repetitive manual polishing with very soft pads) who gives him a brilliant aspect, deep colors and a very soft touch.
Attention to detail, historical interest, authentic materials characterize this very fine globe made by AM, world-renowned for its museum quality reproductions.
