Minerva floor-standing bar globe details:
The charming Minerva mobile bar in a globe can only be described as a “full circle,” because everything about it is spherical, from the full meridian that encompasses the 16-inch (40 cm) diameter earth globe itself to the finely detailed illustrations on the lower base of the floor stand.
As authentic as a twenty-first-century work of sixteenth-century furniture art can be, this floor-standing mobile bar globe is boasts a true replica of an original 16th century map, as does all globe furniture in Zoffoli’s classic collection. Vintage charm and old world distinction simply flow from the accurate reproduction of antique reproduction on the vintage-style globe, which is enhanced even further by the wooden meridian.
In addition to the spacious liquor cabinet inside the intricately detailed globe itself, which can house 2-3 bottles and up to 9 glasses, the beautifully illustrated base shelf provides a specially designed rack to store glassware and bar accessories.
The world globe rotates when the mobile globe bar is closed, and the two halves of the globe turn separately when the bar globe is open.
The hand turned solid hardwood legs are fitted with casters for transporting the drinks cabinet to another location with ease. And you can choose a globe color that best matches your decor.
The Italian manufacturer Zoffoli named this floor-standing bar globe after Minerva, who was the Roman goddess of wisdom and strategic warfare, and the sponsor of arts, trade, and strategy. She was born of Metis, who had been swallowed by Jupiter, and burst from her father’s head, fully armed and clad in armor. From the second century BC onward, the Romans equated her with the Greek goddess Athena. She was the virgin goddess of music, poetry, medicine, wisdom, commerce, weaving, and the crafts.

- 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.
