Admittedly, Marie Antoinette wasn’t remembered for her intellectual exploits. However, during the 18th Century, when she served as Queen of France, many scientists and explorers set off on expeditions around the globe on her behalf, mapping landmasses and oceans, as well as recording local flora and fauna.
This exquisite Terrestrial Globe features a compass( a true replica of a 17th Century dry compass) built into its polished wooden base, with a bronzed metal stand that exudes authenticity and otherworldly charm. Made from paper wood, the beautifully detailed terrestrial ocean globe also gives an accurate glimpse into the world as it was known centuries ago.
