The Columbus Frankfurt Illuminated World Globe - 20 Inch is a handsome offering from the German manufacturer. The 20 inch glass globe stands 24 inches tall on the rich mahogany wood base. Atop the brown stand is a beautiful brass half-meridian that frames the world globe at its 23.5 angle. The meridian has latitudinal degree markings engraved in a stylish type, which accents the model's cartography. When the world globe is not illuminated, the DUO map features political details. Along with the blue ocean hue and pastel patchwork of countries, the political map also shows off place names and other cartographical information. When the desktop globe's internal light is activated, a physical map comes alive on the world globe's exterior. With light, the multicolored continents of the political map take on the natural colors of the planet's landmasses, while some of the earth's relief subtly appears on the map through shading.
The 20 inch glass sphere was hand blown by Columbus' trained artisans! Afterwards, the DUO map was manually cut and glued to the world by the skilled craftspeople, whose individual attention makes each model unforgettable. The artistic qualities of the Columbus Frankfurt Illuminated Desktop Globe - 20 Inch makes it a quintessential addition to your home or office. The large glass sphere and extraordinary cartography makes it a decorative addition that will enthrall for years to come.
This globe is huge and beautiful! We put it in our library and have no regrets. Quick shipping and delivery. Thank you.
