The Tucano is a beautiful floor globe bar and drinks cabinet that has ivory white features all around: the antique-style ivory color floor stand, its ivory meridian, and of course the lovely ivory white globe map itself. The bar globe features beautiful illustrations of sea monsters, mermaids and mythological figures on its map, as is characteristic of all globe bar liquor cabinets from the Tre Esse Collection by Zoffoli.
The bar storage area inside the medium globe sphere itself can store up to 9 glasses and 2 or 3 bottles in the hidden compartment. When ajar the bar globe storage area exposes a lovely inner dome of frescoes featuring more illustrations. The northern hemisphere of the white bar globe rotates, giving you the chance to get an even better look at the illustrations.
The floor stand of the globe bar drinks cabinet has hand turned hardwood legs and is fitted with wheels for easy mobility. And this vintage-style globe bar cabinet has additional bottle storage space on the lower shelf, in addition to the bar storage inside the medium globe. The base shelf, as well as the ring encompassing the equatorial line of the ivory globe, are veneered and white-washed to match the ivory white globe map. The bottom shelf of this charming globe liquor cabinet also features a specially equipped bottle holder.
Zoffoli named this white bar globe Tucano, which is actually Tucana in English. Tucana is a constellation of stars in the southern sky, named after the toucan, a South American bird. Tucana first appeared on a 35-centimeter-diameter (14 in) celestial globe published in 1598 in Amsterdam by Plancius and Jodocus Hondius and was depicted in Johann Bayer’s star atlas Uranometria of 1603. The constellations Tucana, Grus, Phoenix and Pavo are collectively known as the “Southern Birds”.

Each object is exclusive and unrepeatable…all this, combined with the Made in Italy craftsmanship, makes our collection of globes as unique as a signature: Tre-Esse Firenze” — Zoffoli
