This Mercator Terrestrial globe with compass is a beautiful little globe on a compass stand set in brass and wood. The globe itself is a copy of a 1541 Mercator globe, and could be used as an interesting piece of home decor in a sophisticated gentleman's office or study.
Attention to detail
Attention to detail is key. A complicated 'engraving' printing process is replicated, which results in the sharpest lines, words and symbols even on the very small globes. Many years ago globes were made by gluing copperplate printed gores on a plaster finished papier-mâché core. This globe is handmade from specially reproduced paper gores.
