In general, the globes are reproductions of original 16th century maps, made with passion and commitment in our Italian factory. Besides the traditional bar globes, Zoffoli recently started producing bar globes with a more modern appearance. Most globes contain a mini bar in which you can safely store your drinks. All Zoffoli bar globes add an exclusive touch to your interior.
The mastery that distinguishes our furniture and accessories is combined with a keen eye for modern technological solutions and the use of avant-garde material. Zoffoli invites you to explore its wide range of products. Handcrafted in Italy, using man-made materials and solid mahogany.
The elegance of Italian craftsmanship is manifested in the extraordinary Antique Ocean Zoffoli Mercatore 24 Inch Floor Globe. The walnut-finished cradle carries the style of the model's namesake, Gerardus Mercator, a cartographer and famous globe maker of the 16th century. The 24 inch globe is encircled by a full brass-plated meridian, reaching 37.5 inches high on its ornate base. The political map has a parchment style ocean that renders contemporary place names in an antique fashion. The classic hue of the oceans plays against the multicolored patchwork of the landmasses. This world globe also presents the names of countries in the nation's native language. The English translation is included in parenthesis. For example, Mongolia is displayed as "Mongol uls (Mongolia)."
Another unique feature of the Zoffoli world globes is that the maps are printed using cutting edge technology that makes them resistant to UV rays. As a result, their rich colors will not be faded by natural light. The Antique Ocean Zoffoli Mercatore 24 Inch Floor Globe is a beautifully designed unit that personifies a traditional 16th century European style. With its tremendous stand and vintage map characteristics, this Zoffoli floor globe is an impressive homage to its namesake, and a marvel sure to be shining star of any decor.
