Wonder, intrigue, curiosity and discovery – qualities that are so often missing from our busy lives.

That was before Authentic Models. They’re interested in appealing to the mind as well as to the eye. Designed to mirror the unique beauty of antique objects and curiosities, Authentic Models’ pieces come across as both functional and decorative, lovingly recreated from materials that don’t break from tradition.

During the 18th Century, Gilles Robert de Vaugondy and his son, Didier Robert de Vaugondy, were the leading mapmakers in France. Didier was the appointed geographer to Louis XV in 1760, and published globes of various sizes - the biggest being over two metres in diameter!

The 1745 Vaugondy Miniature Globe is a small replica of the traditional Vaugondy world map, and is a lasting accessory for your office desk or coffee table. Made from paperwood, this gorgeous globe is an early document of history, as it gives an accurate glimpse into the world as it was known centuries ago. As beautiful as it is practical, this globe offers a back-in-time-experience, as well as a guide to interpreting and appreciating history.

History really comes to life, thanks to Authentic Models.

  • Designed in the USA.
  • Made from paperboard.
  • Features a traditional 1745 map created by Robert de Vaugondy.
  • Beautifully presented in an Authentic Models gift tube.
