In the 16th-18th centuries, ocean pioneers were the celebrities of the age. Figures such as Drake, Magellan, and Cook discovered new lands, facilitated trade, and spread power and influence around the globe. Even today, their reputation and achievements are so embedded in our history, that they remain household names. So when we sat down to name our new ranges of globes, these were the obvious choice. The Exploration Globe Set consists of three globes, gift boxed, each with a different mapping style, and all three resting freely on individual metal rings. Each globe measures 4" in diameter.

I bought these globes to put a an original ornamental twist on an empty chimney grate in two bedrooms! They just look superb and my guests have really enjoyed studying them during their stay! Nice one Nauticalia!
Like I have said looking at the picture in the catalogue they looked bigger so we are disappointed in that way.But otherwise we are pleased with them.
