Choose the globe you like best and add a unique piece to your collection.
The first collector's glass ball, the progenitor of all spheres, appeared at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1878, as did the first one with a miniature inside, in 1889.
However, glass globes and spheres’ inventor was not a Frenchman, but an Austrian: Erwin Perzy I, who had the intuition to add water to the bulbs, thinking it would make them brighter. To achieve a greater effect, he also added semolina flakes: obviously, he didn't get the reaction he expected, but he was enchanted by the slow descent of these white elements.
From then until today, thanks to the Hollywood films too, collectible’s globes became successful items, up to the arrival of Cool Snow Globes, which packs real charm into small and large globes.
Have fun choosing your favorite items or make the most original gift ever.
