The extraordinary design of the Columbus Potsdam Illuminated Floor Globe - 16 Inch shows off the antique ROYAL map. The 16 inch acrylic world globe stands 47 inches high on the brass colored floor stand. A cylindrical arm protruding from the base holds a half meridian, which carries the sphere at a 23.5 degree tilt and features a time dial. The unornamented design of the floor stand allows the ROYAL map to become the focal point of the model. The ocean on the political map is rendered in a parchment style beige-hue which complements the earth-toned mosaic of the landmasses. Turning on the illuminated globe's light switch not only allows its radiant colors to burst forth into the room, but also allows some properties of a physical map to overlay the contemporary place names of the political one.
The ROYAL map was manually cut into sections and glued to the floor globe by Columbus' experienced craftspeople. The rich attention to detail that every model receives is what helps these models reach the highest levels of quality that they maintain for years and years. The classic style of the Columbus Potsdam Illuminated Floor Globe - 16 Inch makes it a timeless masterpiece. Enjoy the antique flavor of this tremendous Columbus globe in the home or office. Its sterling design and detailed cartography will enthrall for generations to come.
