  • Main features of the floor standing corner bar globe cabinet:

    • 16″ (40 cm) diameter globe ball storage space
    • Hand drawn 18th century map
    • Globe’s northern hemisphere rotates
    • Hand turned solid wood legs fitted with casters for easy mobility
    • Imported directly from the manufacturer in Italy

    This corner globe drinks cabinet is a testament to the excellent craftsmanship and style that world renowned Zoffoli has given the world for the past 70 years. That this floor globe bar belongs to the manufacturer’s Universal Globe Collection can be deduced by the unique color combination of the globe, which Zoffoli simply calls “rust,” and by the 18th century map that has been hand drawn by Zoffoli’s master Italian cartographers.

    The storage area inside the medium 16-inch diameter globe ball is sufficient to house a minimum of 2 bottles and approximately 9 glasses. Additional glassware can be stored on the base shelf which has a specially designed brass ring that serves as a bottle rack to house more bottles securely. It also features a beautiful illustration of a wind rose, which harmonizes perfectly with the Zodiac illustrations on the ring around its equatorial line.

    Once opened the corner globe bar cabinet reveals beautiful illustrations on the inner dome, and since the northern hemisphere of the bar globe cabinet rotates you can find the best view. The hand turned hardwood legs of the globe bar’s floor stand are equipped with casters for easy mobility.

    The legs are handcrafted from solid hardwood and stained a lovely chestnut color. The equatorial zodiac ring and base shelf are made of MDF and hand painted a chestnut color to match the legs.

    Zoffoli aptly named this corner globe drinks cabinet after Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, an Italian painter who employed close physical observation with a dramatic use of chiaroscuro that came to be known as tenebrism. He made the technique a dominant stylistic element, darkening shadows and transfixing subjects in bright shafts of light. His influence on the new Baroque style that emerged from Mannerism was profound. It can be seen directly or indirectly in the work of Peter Paul Rubens, Jusepe de Ribera, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and Rembrandt, and artists in the following generation heavily under his influence were called the “Caravaggisti” or “Caravagesques”, as well as tenebrists or tenebrosi (“shadowists”).

    • Made in Italy – Free Shipping and Delivery to All of North America
      Why? Globe furniture made in Italy ships free to the entire USA and Canada. We import Italian bar globes directly from the manufacturer in Italy and since the cost of shipping an item from Italy to any destination within North America is the same, we are able to offer free shipping to both Canada and the United States.
    • Made in China – Free Shipping – Delivery to the USA ONLY
      Why? Bar globes and world globes not made in Italy ship free to the USA ONLY. The distributors of non-Italian globe bar furniture are located in the United States and the shipping cost included in our price is for destinations within the contiguous United States. You are welcome to contact us for a quote on additional shipping costs to other destinations, but in our experience the cost of shipping a Chinese globe bar to a destination outside of the United States usually exceeds the price of the globe cabinet itself.
    • Shipping to Countries in the European Union
      We apologize but at this time we are unable to fill orders for Italian bar globes to be delivered to EU member countries due to current VAT laws. EU customers must be charged Value Added Tax for purchases of Italian items and this can only be done by EU retailers. We recommend visiting, the Italian manufacturer’s online shop geared towards North American customers. 
    • Shipping to Non-EU Member Countries in Europe
      Since non-EU countries do not need to be charged VAT, we are able to offer free shipping on orders for Italian bar globes to be delivered to European countries that are not in the European Union.  
    • Shipping to Australia and New Zealand
      Sometimes we are able to offer free shipping to Australia and New Zealand, however there may be a surcharge of anywhere between $15 to $60 (USD) added to your subtotal for shipping – the amount depends on the weight and dimensions of the package(s). If you would like to know what that surcharge would be in advance, please contact us before you place your order.
    • Shipping to All Other Destinations WorldWide
