About the Authentic Models collection
Founder Haring Piebenga loved antique auctions and the wonderful heritage pieces that he would discover there. On one occasion he purchased a British explorer's pocket compass and his imagination was fired by the miniature work of art that he was holding in his hands. He dreamt of the places he could discover and explore using the compass. This precious piece and other beautiful artefacts then persuaded him to recreate originals in wonderful detail for others to enjoy.
For more than 50 years, Authentic Models has been enchanting enthusiastic and loyal collectors around the globe. Ideal for those with a passion for history and the unknown, the gorgeous handmade models perfectly replicate stunning originals. Each piece is crafted with exceptional care from the finest materials and is distinguished by amazing attention to detail.
