The Replogle Leerdam Vase Frank Lloyd Wright Desktop Globe is based on archival designs the legendary architect made for the famous Dutch glassware-producing company, Glassfabriek Leerdam. In 1929 Frank Lloyd Wright created 33 designs for tableware in collaboration with Leerdam, of which this Replogle globe takes its inspiration. The base features Wright's signature hexagonal design. The two toned wood stand is shaped like a vase and supports the 12 inch globe to reach 20 inches high total. A 360 degree, full antique brass meridian frames the world globe, which spins freely on its 23.5 degree tilted axis. The die-cast meridian features latitudinal markings and a time dial at the peak of the model. Its brass color matches the bottom half of the wooden base, along with the antique-styled political map.
The parchment-colored oceans on the map are accented by the earth-toned patchwork of the continents. Each country in a landmass is given a complimentary hue that juxtaposes against neighboring nations. Classical map characteristics ornament this otherwise up-to-date political map. The Replogle Leerdam Vase Frank Lloyd Wright Desktop Globe is a sophisticated model for appreciators of art history. This piece, adapted from the iconic architect's own designs, is a captivating installment on any tabletop, desk, bookshelf or coffee table.
I love art history and architecture, and this globe is a beautiful piece of design. Based on Wright's own designs, this Leerdam Vase is really special.
