Desktop globe made of crystal glass, handblown and handdcrafted brass base, brass meridian, handblown and handcrafted.
The manufacturing of these models from mouth-blown crystal glass spheres is characterized by great craftsmanship. They are masterpieces of the traditional globe production and during their fabrication, nothing is left to chance. With a unique globe in mind, the artists work manually and with the highest precision. Here, the production speed is of lesser importance - after all, the goal is to create a true masterpiece. The production of a mouth-blown sphere is a real challenge, which only a few artists around the world rise to. Therefore, it can take several days until, with much skill and passion, the materials are combined into a cartographical and optical masterpiece.
The invention of lithography in the 19th century revolutionized the production of maps. The schematical woodcut and copperplate engraving gave way to the colored appearance of drawn maps - but in wide circulation. Our ROYAL unites the nostalgic feeling of old map styles and current data. The warm impression of its map meets today's political worldview. In 2015 it was honored as manufacture product of the year with the German manufacture seal, and in 2018 the travel fair ITB awarded it with the book award for outstanding publicist performances. The ROYAL: Scientific know-how of the 21st century in the look of the 19th century.
The mounting made of mirror-finished massive brass is a product of great manual skill that transforms your globe into an expression of a particular quality of life, which will continue to bring you joy for decades.
