Comments about Authentic Models 18th Century Atlas Armillary 10-Inch Diameter Tabletop Globe:
Very attractive center piece for the family great room. Only complaint is that the statue is not securely affixed to the base. In fact, I use extreme care when moving the piece for cleaning the table it sits on.
