Iris Antique Globes and Maps


Iris Antique Globes and Maps originated from the Conservation Studio of Paul Peters, for paper, vellum and parchment, leather, books, prints, graphics,…and globes and maps. Paul is a master paper and globe restorer. His fascination of antique globes and cartography in general prompted him to buy globes, and later also to sell them to other antique globe lovers and collectors.

One of the most popular of modern collectibles is the globe, because of its variation in size and attractive appearance, usually mounted in a finely crafted wooden stand. Globes are also functional, for those from the nineteenth century contain most of the known geographical features and all the prominent star positions.

Because we believe that the collector of globes, which have always been of great educational value, would benefit from and enjoy some information on both the history and the makers of globes, we have created two new web pages – Globe History and Globe Makers.

From our showroom we sell historically important and decorative globes and similar instruments to collectors, universities, museums and other institutions worldwide, as well as international companies. Weare always interested in purchasing new material, whether a single item or a complete set or collection.

Our collection of globes contains items from the 16th to the beginning of the 20th centuries and can be rated as one of the largest and finest in the world.
In our collection you will find terrestrial and celestial globes of a wide range of types, library, table, miniature and pocket models, but also armillary spheres, tellurium’s, planetaria, and globe curiosities.

The map section is concentrated on framed wall maps, both large and small, and a fine choice of  decorative items, from the period of the 16th to the mid-19th centuries.

Customers considering the acquisition of an object from our collection will receive an extensive description, accompanied by digital pictures of the item of their choice.
A certificate of Authenticity will be provided with all items on request.
