This charming globe bar cart from the Classic design collection by Zoffoli features a true reproduction of a 16th century world globe that is crafted according to the olden tradition of applying sections of printed paper called gores onto the globe sphere. The globe’s classic old world pigmentation blends beautifully with the intricate detail of the upper serving tray and the screen-printed base shelf.
The antique replica world globe rotates both when the globe is open and when it is closed, and the hidden mini-bar inside the classic vintage replica world globe can hold up to 3 bottles and 9 glasses.
The spaciousness of the upper tray, the base shelf and the storage compartment inside the vintage world globe combined provide abundant space to store and proudly display the finest of crystal and glassware.
The sturdy and beautiful hand crafted legs of the globe bar cart serving trolley are made from hand turned hardwood that has been stained a lovely chestnut color to match the rest of the globe furniture. The bar cart is equipped with casters so that this liquor cabinet can easily be rolled to any location.
The skilled Italian artisans of this bar globe trolley based it on a very similar larger version, the Heroic Artemis Large Globe Bar Cart (see the related products below). There may be a few subtle differences that give each globe bar serving cart its own style and distinction, but for the most part the two Italian globe bar trolleys by Zoffoli are nearly identical except for their size. And since this drinks cart is slightly smaller than its counterpart, it is more affordable as a result.
Giasone is Italian for Jason, which may seem like a strange name for a piece of globe furniture. However, the manufacturer named it after the ancient Greek mythological hero Jason, the leader of the Argonauts whose quest for the Golden Fleece featured in Greek literature. We considered naming this globe trolley “Heroic Jason Bar Cart Trolley” but let’s face it, it just doesn’t sound right.
