Depicts the Vaugondy’s 18th century global map in rustic coloring, mounted on a wooden base and suspended with brass.
Gilles Robert de Vaugondy and his son Didier were 18th century French cartographers. Didier would go on to work for several royal employers, including King Louis XV, the Duke of Lorraine, the King of Poland, and the Grand Duke of Lithuania. This globe takes you back about 300 years to a time when ships and celestial observations were used to map the known world.
