  • Main features of the Galileo table top globe bar cabinet:
    • 16-inch (40 cm) diameter desk globe sphere:
    • Elegant Italian-made bar globe that fits on any table top
    • Available in two colors: rust or blue dust
    • Features 18th century map hand drawn by master Italian cartographers
    • Made by the world leader in antique globe reproduction
    • Imported directly from the manufacturer in Italy

    The Galileo table top 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 “rust,” 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 rust 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 bar globe 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 blue dust color (see the related products at the bottom of  your screen).

    The Italian manufacturer named this table top 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.

    • 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
