All prices include VAT
History enthusiasts will love this Antique Terrestrial White Globe, a 2015 Luxury Gift of the Year Award Winner, which combines a vintage map created in 1790 with modern updates that make it unlike any globe you've had before. Every continent and ocean is shown with absolute clarity and contrast, and it features lines showing the three voyages of Captain James Cook–a design element first created in 1790 by Giovanni Maria Cassini. In homage to Cook’s explorations and failed attempts to locate Antarctica, the Antique Terrestrial Globe does not include Antarctica, as Cook did not believe it existed. Created in crisp white and green colors, the globe features latitude and longitude lines, and a red ecliptic line showing the sun’s position each day of the year. It also shows the United States which was very young at the time and not included on many maps. With its smooth, independent rotations, it's like history comes to life in your home or office.

* To remove fingerprints and dust, rinse with water and wipe dry with a soft cloth.
* Do not use any abrasive cleaning solutions.
* Do not keep MOVA globes exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time to avoid graphics fading.
* Fluorescent lighting, LED lights, and indirect sunlight flowing through the windows provide the most optimal lighting, although MOVA Globes will rotate in any kind of sufficient ambient light. It is suggested that high-powered halogen lights be avoided due to the heat they emit.
Packaging: MOVA Globe comes with easy to assemble 3-pronged acrylic stand, user manual, and product registration.
Additional Information: Please note that photo color may differ slightly from actual product color due to lighting used during photoshoots or the monitor’s display.
