Three-Dimensional Replica of Washington's Globe
To George Washington, learning about the world around him was very important. Washington ordered his terrestrial globe in 1789 during his first year as president. The English-made globe arrived the following year, and Washington consulted it throughout his presidency until retiring with it to Mount Vernon in 1797. The globe is recognized today as one of a few items that has never been removed from Washington's home in over 200 years. 24 kt gold finish.
