This historical piece, which conveys the image and legend of the celebrated discoverer, imagines the world that existed in the mind of Christopher Columbus before reaching America.
- In 1975 small manufacture Creaciones Dángel was renamed CREDAN and became an industrialised company which, without forgetting its craft origins and based on a carefully-chosen human team, began its adventure in other markets.
- Thus, it managed to place its products in the most prestigious shops around the world.
- The quality of the raw materials used (including 24-carat gold) and the refinement and elegance of the finished products, helped to rapidly spread CREDAN’s reputation around the entire world. Kings, princes, sheikhs, ambassadors and the most prestigious figures soon became loyal customers of CREDAN.
- The tradition of elegance, quality, craftsmanship and historical inspiration can still be seen in all the articles manufactured by CREDAN.
We would like to present an exclusive desk globe Christopher Columbus. Christopher Columbus, sailor and explorer, perhaps of Genovese origin, was the controversial, self-taught and highly-observant man who, in the service of the Crown of Castile, discovered the American continent on the 12th of October 1492. Columbus was the first admiral, viceroy and governor
of the Indies, and he showed the mariners of his day the route to follow to travel to and from the continent that would be called America. In undertaking this endeavour, Christopher Columbus let himself be guided by an incredible seafaring intuition and what he had learnt from different geographical studies, especially those carried out by Marco Polo over a century before.
