    This stylish vintage classic globe bar cabinet features a delightful dance of contours, from the full meridian that encompasses the world globe, to the sleek wide rim of the floor stand, to the playful waves of the storage rack, to the gently curved rectangular base shelf, to the turned wood legs that have reliefs of their own.

    The antique reproduction classic globe bar rotates on its axis, and when the world globe is open the two halves of the globe bar can even rotate independently. Store up to nine glasses and three bottles of your favorite beverages inside the world globe of this Italian-made globe bar, which is part of Zoffoli’s classic collection. The 16th century world globe replica is crafted in a time-honored method by layering printed accurate map reproductions onto the base sphere.

    In addition to the spacious drinks cabinet inside the earth globe itself, the beautifully illustrated wooden shelf at the base of this piece of globe furniture provides a specially designed rack to store glassware and bar accessories. The bottle rack also adds to the lovely contours of the vintage globe furniture.

    The hand crafted turned solid hardwood legs of the antique replica bar globe are stained a lovely chestnut color and are equipped with casters so that this liquor cabinet can be moved easily when needed. The equatorial zodiac ring, meridian, bottle rack and lower base shelf are made of MDF that has been hand-painted a chestnut color to match the legs and meridian. 

    Zoffoli calls this bar globe Minosse (eng. Minos). In Greek mythology Minos was the first King of Crete, son of Zeus and Europa. Every nine years, he made King Aegeus pick seven young boys and seven young girls to be sent to Daedalus’s creation, the labyrinth, to be eaten by the Minotaur. After his death, Minos became a judge of the dead in the underworld.

    • 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
      Please contact us for a quote.
