About Globes - Antiques

If you find a certain beauty in over-sized rustic furniture, heavy draperies, and wrought-iron accents, consider transforming your modern office into one that exudes Old World charm. European offices of the past were never complete without a map on the wall, a globe of the world, and a heavy leather chair. Take a trip back to the 15th century by choosing elegant and timeless pieces, like a standing vintage world globe that can be placed on the floor, or an antique globe with a wooden stand that will be right at home on your desk, the focal point of your office. World globes are typically 12 inches in diameter, but can be anywhere between 3 1/2 inches to 17 inches. A vintage world globe can also vary in date, from the early 1930s to the 1970s. When buying a globe, make sure it does not show excessive wear and tear, although minor imperfections are to be expected in older globes. Consider its aesthetic appeal as well, and choose between a brightly colored, sepia-tone, or black and white globe, based on your room's color scheme. If you are looking to splurge, world globes made with semi-precious stones sold by reliable sellers on eBay can add that extra touch of luxury to your work area. No matter what type of globe you choose, it can be sent straight to your front door through one of the many convenient shipping options available.
