Admittedly, Marie Antoinette wasn’t remembered for her intellectual exploits. But during her time France sent expeditions around the globe. Scientists and explorers mapped landmasses and oceans, and recorded local flora and fauna. Undoubtedly a globe of some kind, probably similar to this Trianon, adorned, or perhaps dominated her library.
Inspired by the Age of Sail, exploration, science, and cartography, and with a commitment to quality and intrigue, Authentic Models offers a collection with the character of authenticity. Made by artisans using time-honored skills, these pieces enrich a room, and the people in it, with a profound spirit of history and nostalgia.
