This rare, vintage print is of the Globe Celeste. The Globe is a map to show constellations - Leo, Taurus, Virgo, Ursa Major and Minor, Cancer and a handful of others.

This is a hand-aged print from the1960's that sits under glass and is placed in a hand-distressed, solid wood frame. It is in mint condition and very well taken care of.

The print is in black and shaded with a pale blue and is matted against the same complimentary blue color around the edges. The picture inside the frame is 8x6 and the frame itself is 11.5x9.5

History:
The Globe Celeste was an icon of the Exposition Universelle.
The Exposition Universelle of 1900 was a world's fair held in Paris, France, from April 15 to November 12, 1900, to celebrate the achievements of the past century and to accelerate development into the next. The style that was universally present in the Exposition was Art Nouveau. The fair displayed, in view of over 50 million people, many machines, inventions, and architecture that are now (nearly) universally known, including; escalators, the Eiffel Tower, Ferris wheels, Russian Nesting Dolls, Campbell's Soup, Diesel engines, talking films, and the Telegraphone (the precursor to modern day sound recording).
