This is a wonderful pair of old world globes book holders made in the mid century by, what i think, Italian Company, Mercurio D'Oro.
In the armillary globe the metal globe and rings spin freely and separeted. The globe comes out of the base.
The band around the rings features the signs of the zodiac.
The other beautiful globe has maps from the 17th century, with sea serpents, Gods, monsters antique ships/caravels etc
Will be packed with great care and shipped with trace
