The one-of-a-kind Columbus Dresden Illuminated World Globe - 16 Inch leaves a bold impression with its classic, "Old World" design! The 16 inch ball stands 20 tall on its thin brass stand. The half-meridian that cradles the illuminated globe, holds it at a 23.5 degree angle and is topped by a time dial at the sphere's northern point. The Dresden displays Columbus' brand new Imperial map. The classically styled map features all sorts of old fashioned cartographical flourishes like detailed compass roses and cartouches, along with pictures of sailboats and sea monsters that recall maps of yesteryear. Still, despite the nostalgic details from the political map, its cartography is completely current. The landmasses are beige colored and set against the pale blue ocean hue, all of which can be inspected by the timeless brass and wood Magnifying Glass that comes with every model, in its own case!
The desktop globe's graceful design is overflowing with place names and political country divisions, along with other geographic flourishes like rivers and lakes dissecting the continents. Turn on the sphere's light bulb and watch as the desktop globe's brilliant cartography fills up the room with earthy tones. The Columbus Dresden Illuminated Desktop Globe - 16 Inch, as Columbus' latest entry in its venerable line, carries a timeless style. The exceptional cartography is showcased beautifully in the nostalgic design, which blends with the modern cartography.
Can't even describe how much I love my Dresden! The map is amazing. Highly recommended.
