9 Globe Clipart
Today we have a wonderful collection of various Globe Images! Some of the Globe Clipart Pictures are fairly basic and simplistic and some are truly quite elaborate and detailed. I think that it is amazing how accurately these old globes represented positioning of the Earth’s axis along with the lines of latitude and longitude. One even has a mechanism that can set the angle of the Earth relative to the Sun during the Earth’s annual rotation. This allows for depiction of the seasons with Summer and Winter Solstice days and the Equinox days of Spring and Fall. All of these images are truly interesting. I think these would look great in Steampunk Projects or a Handmade Masculine Card!
This is a fun Vintage Globe Clipart picture! The earth is tilting off of the pedestal of the stand. The base is fairy decorative.
Shown above is a Vintage Globe graphic. This was scanned from a rare Antique Printer’s book that dates to around circa 1880′s. Such classic looking objects to use in your Art.
Featured here is an Antique Globe Picture that was also scanned from the circa 1880’s rare Antique Printer’s book. Shown is a traditional looking Globe on a wooden stand. The angle of the Earth’s axis as it rotates was obviously known a long time ago. The astronomers using old-fashioned telescopes didn’t have high-tech equipment and must have been very smart!
Pictured above is a fun Retro Globe Clipart Image! This black and white illustration shows a nifty looking Globe on a metal stand. This globe is different in that it appears that it may not be solid, but regardless of that the lines on it are quite bold! A cute little image to use in your Art!
This black and white Globe Clipart is not as ornate as the other ones, but I think it’s probably the tallest! The Wooden base looks like it’s made of finely carved wood of some type, perhaps it’s Mahogany.
Here is the latest addition to this collection. This one is quite a substantial looking model with it’s sturdy looking base and casters.
Unusual Globe Clipart Images
This is a Globe from an 1860’s Catalog! This one is very ornate, with all sorts of fancy ornamental work on it, including three carved figures on the base. The intricate details of the figures adorning this globe are truly quite amazing I think. I cannot imagine how long it might have taken to hand- craft this piece!
Here’s a nifty old fashioned looking globe Image. Interestingly, the instruments on this globe used to set the Earth’s axis and read latitudes and longitudes appear to be almost as advanced as what are probably used today! Perhaps this one was used by someone with a scientific background.
Pictured above is an interesting illustration from an early Children’s Geography book circa 1885. This engraving of the Earth with clouds swirling around it is almost dreamlike and surreal. Such an imaginative image!
I hope you enjoyed this marvelous curated collection of Globe Clipart Images! You might also like our Best Steampunk Images HERE!
I particularly love the globe with the ornate, carved figures on the base. There is just so much to look at – I’m not sure if it would be the globe I would be gazing at or all of the other timeless handwork that has been done. It truly is one of a kind! Thank you so much for sharing these with us and have a wonderful week ahead of you!

Hi — I’m looking for an argyle background, either colored (blues/blacks) or b/w and a dragon. I’m having a hard time finding either. The gargoyles are either too cartoony or a side view (which I might live with) or cut off. And I find very few argyle backgrounds at all, and none in blues. If you could help, I’d truly appreciate it! Love your site!
