Mercator was the most famous mapmaker of the 16th century, the Age of Discovery (Magellan, Jacques Cartier, Francis Drake,...).
His world and celestial globes were considered as reference globes by Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor and Francis I of France.

French polish The base of this globe is a classical french support; he excels in the visual appeal of its proportions.

He seduces with its rich and perfect match of ebonized wood and bronze.
The wood has a french finishing (repetitive manual polishing with very soft pads) who gives him a brilliant aspect, deep colors and a very soft touch.
Attention to detail, historical interest, authentic materials characterize this very fine globe made by AM, world-renowned for its museum quality reproductions.
