Fine vintage desk globe bar details:
This stunning Italian desk globe bar by Zoffoli belongs to Zoffoli’s Antiqua Collection, easily recognized by the world globe map’s signature pale peach color which the Italian manufacturer calls “fusca”.
Though this 18th century replica desk globe bar is designed to be a mini bar in a world globe on a desktop or table top, the Italian globe bar set is impressive for its girth, as well as for its elegance and superb craftsmanship. The charming pale peach fusca color of the world globe sphere complements the chestnut-stained hardwood base and beech wood knob of the desk globe and is a wonderful match for any style of decor.
It is true that this antique replica table globe bar cabinet is compact so it could sit on a table top, however, the vintage desk top globe bar is equal in size to many floor-standing globes or globe bar cart trolleys and provides ample storage space while saving on floor space. The liquor 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 excellent value and compact nature of this charming tabletop antique globe bar replica have no effect on its quality. Zoffoli manufactures it with the same superb workmanship and attention to detail it has used to make all of its globe bars and globes since it began crafting them in 1949. The globe’s eighteenth century map is an accurate reproduction that is adhered to the sphere by traditional means, using layers of printed paper.
Zoffoli, the Italian manufacturer who crafted this desk globe cabinet, called it Urano, which is Italian for Uranus, the seventh planet from the sun.

- 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.
