Iris Antique Globes was founded in 1980 by Paul Peters. Paul is a specialist dealer in globes from the 16th to the beginning of the 19th century.
Our customers include private collectors, universities, museums and other institutions worldwide, as well as international companies. 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.
We are members of the following trade associations: The International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB); The International Coronelli Society, Vienna, Austria; The Dutch League of Antiquarian Booksellers (NvvA)
