    The floor-standing Majestic Achilles Bar Globe on Casters is a stunning antique reproduction piece of furniture and as true a replica as a twenty-first-century work of sixteenth-century globe furniture art can be. It is made by Zoffoli, the world renowned Italian manufacturer that has been crafting antique-style globes for over 60 years.

    The finely detailed 16th century map depicted on the large world globe is an accurate reproduction made by master Italian cartographers in the traditional manner using layers of printed paper gores. It opens at the hinges on the equator, which is surrounded by a finely detailed rim, and boasts a calibrated full meridian which encompasses the large globe entirely and emphasizes its aura of antiquity. The globe sphere fully rotates around its meridian either when it is opened or closed. 

    The charmingly illustrated inner dome of the globe drinks cabinet serves as the ceiling for the spacious drinks cabinet within, which can hold approximately 6 bottles and 16 pieces of stemware.

    This exquisite work of antique globe furniture art makes an extraordinary centerpiece in any large, traditional room and can easily be moved because the superbly turned chestnut-shade solid hardwood floor stand is equipped with casters.

    The manufacturer Zoffoli named this floor-standing drinks cabinet after Achilles, who in Greek mythology was a Greek hero of the Trojan War and the central character and greatest warrior of Homer’s Iliad. Achilles’ most notable feat during the Trojan War was the slaying of the Trojan hero Hector outside the gates of Troy.

    • 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 ZoffoliGlobe.com, 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
