Globes, the obsession of a collector...

Recommended Posts

One thing I have really never seen a good scale miniature of is a globe. While looking around I stumbled on this article on a Mr. Glazer..... On could say he might be obsessed with collecting, I don't know but it sure makes my place look like that of a minimalist.

Oh my, what a collection! But I think I would feel a bit claustrophobic if my house looked like that. I really like the globe lights, that is something I haven't seen before. And of course my eye were drawn to all the rugs and the needlepoint chair.

Thanks for sharing, going to send it on to my brother, I thought we were both obsessive collectors but this guy beats us hands down.

I love that photo. It looks like a movie set.

Hahaha, what a great article! 

 

 

But in-between are lots of other collections starting to merge :) Like the spiral staircases, which i love btw.

 

But this post is about globes... and funny enough I'd these globes lying around for more then a decade now. Initially thought of making a metal stand for them but never got round to it.

Later, when I got into miniatures I researched making a really small globe and stand. Somewhere I still have the detailled fold out map i printed to make the sphere.
