In 1929 Frank Lloyd Wright created a variety of tableware designs including china, stemware, serving pieces, candlesticks and vases for the Leerdam Glassfabrik Company. Frank Lloyd Wright's series of tableware designs were originally to be produced from metal, china, or crystal. The complexity and uniqueness of these designs limited the manufacture of the collection to producing only a handful of pieces during this time. The Leerdam globe was adapted from a Frank Lloyd Wright archival drawing of a vase he designed from this series. The the solid wood hexagonal base features a two tone finish, from the light wood finished stand extrudes a walnut column that supports the globe and meridian.
