The Galileo tabletop globe bar belongs to the Italian manufacturer’s Zoffoli Universal Globe design collection. This is obvious from the unique color combination of the globe, which Zoffoli simply calls “blue dust,” as well as by the 18th-century map that has been hand drawn by expert Italian cartographers.

Though this charming bar globe is designed to be a small mini bar that sits on a desk or table top, the Italian tabletop globe bar set is still impressive for its girth, as well as for its elegance and superb craftsmanship. The lovely color of the world globe sphere complements the chestnut-stained base and beech wood knob of the desk globe.

While compact in nature, the vintage style Galileo desk globe liquor cabinet is equal in diameter to many floor-standing globes or globe bar cart trolleys and provides ample storage space while saving on floor space. The mini bar cabinet hidden inside can accommodate 9 pieces of stemware at the outer edge and 2-3 bottles in the center. The interior of the tabletop globe bar also features an inner dome of beautifully illustrated frescoes.

The base of the antique replica world globe is made of MDF and the knob on top is of beech wood, both hand painted a matching classic chestnut color.

The Galileo is also available in a rust color (see the related products at the bottom of your screen).

The Italian manufacturer named this tabletop globe bar after Galileo Galilei – an Italian astronomer, physicist, engineer, philosopher, and mathematician. Galileo has been called the “father of observational astronomy,” the “father of modern physics,” the “father of the scientific method,” and the “father of science.” His contributions to observational astronomy include the telescopic confirmation of the phases of Venus, the discovery of the four largest satellites of Jupiter, the observation of Saturn’s rings (though he could not see them well enough to discern their true nature) and the analysis of sunspots.

  1. Janah Lee

    I was disappointed because the hinge broke quite soon after I bought it. I thought the whole thing could be constructed more stable. But I did get a replacement through the great customer service here.
