    The Gea Gemini, Taurus and Virgo are modern world globe bars that differ in size but are nearly identical in design. They are part of the Gea Collection (Gaia in English) by the famous Italian manufacturer Zoffoli, a series of globes and bar globes made of high quality materials with finely detailed ochre and burgundy current political/geographical maps and stylized shapes, showing current countries, major cities, capitols, and even ocean currents.

    The Gea Taurus, midway between the Gemini and the Virgo in size, is equally elegant and superbly crafted while its girth still has stunning impact. Its impressive modern world globe, encompassed by a beautiful full meridian, houses a drinks cabinet that can store store 4 or 5 bottles and approximately 12 glasses, and rotates to provide easy access to the glassware.

    Additional bottles can be stored on the laminated lower base shelf decorated with a beautiful unique wind rose that blends perfectly with the illustrated Zodiac ring around the bar globe’s equatorial line. The Northern and Southern hemispheres of the world globe itself also rotate independently when the globe bar cabinet is open. And all Gea bar globes are easy to move from room to room because the hand-crafted solid hardwood legs are equipped with hidden casters for easy relocation.

    The chestnut-colored stand and picturesque base harmonize superbly with the golden wheat and auburn shades that can be found on the exterior of the earth globe, a signature color combination that Zoffoli simply calls “Gea”.

    Zoffoli has passed on the art of crafting world globes in Italy for over three generations. In addition to its celebrated antique-style replicas, it successfully combines traditional Italian craftsmanship with contemporary solutions to create works of globe furniture art like the Gea Taurus world globe floor-standing drinks cabinet.

    It may not be that clear why the manufacturer named this collection Gea because in English it is actually Gaia. In Greek mythology, Gaia is the personification of the Earth and one of the Greek primordial deities. Gaia is the ancestral mother of all life: the primal Mother Earth goddess. So it is perfectly fitting to name a globe design collection after this deity. 

    This Gea contemporary globe bar is named after the constellation Taurus – a large and prominent constellation in the northern hemisphere’s winter sky. It is one of the oldest constellations, dating back to at least the Early Bronze Age when it marked the location of the Sun during the spring equinox.

    • 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
