National Geographic Compass Star Desktop Globe showcases a unique, midcentury modern design. The 12 inch globe is held in a winged, walnut-finish wood stand, reaching 17.5 inches high total. A full, brass colored die-cast meridian frames the antique style world globe with latitudinal markings. National Geographic has a reputation for sharp cartography, and the Compass Star world globe is no exception. The beige, antique style ocean color is complimented by the light pastel shades of the planet's political divisions. Fine, gold lettering opulently labels place names, while others are featured in a clear black text. A dial at the top of the desktop globe gives time zone information.
The wood base holds up the National Geographic Compass Star Desktop Globe with two extended supports. The world globe is gimbal mounted to the meridian, meaning it can be swiveled up and down to perfectly suit the perspective of the onlooker. Additionally, there is a commemorative National Geographic coin that comes with the model, inlaid into the base of the stand. The beautiful National Geographic map and the original design of the stand combine here to create a special model that thrills with its classic design, but still feels ahead of its time.
Beautiful globe. Good quality. Arrived in short time.
I gave this to my husband for our anniversary. He put it on his desk at work and is really pleased with it.
