A miniature globe by Bauer in a carved ‘walnut’ case, in the form of a carved linden wood walnut which opens to reveal a terrestrial globe, the land heavily outlined against pale cream seas Signed with initials. German, circa 1810.
Footnote: Carl Johann Sigmund Bauer (1780-1857), with his father, Johann Bernard Bauer (1752-1839) and his brother, Peter Bauer (1783-1847), formed a distinguished family of globe makers, scientific instrument makers and engravers in Nuremburg, Germany. They produced a variety of globes, including miniatures for the educational market. The best known of these is a set called ‘The Earth and its Inhabitants’ which featured a miniature globe in a box, together with a concertina foldout, hand coloured with images of the different peoples of the world. Versions for the English, German, and French markets survive.
