The Columbus Kiel Illuminated Glass Desktop Globe exhibits the quality craftsmanship the German manufacturer is known for. This model features a 16 inch hand-blown crystal glass globe that stands 20 inches tall with its brushed stainless steel stand. The cylindrical semi-meridian that holds the globe is a stylish compliment to an already elegant world globe. The Kiel's DUO map is hand applied by Columbus' skilled craftsmen whose dedication and love of globe manufacturing rubs off on this superb model. The desktop globe, when it is not illuminated, features a contemporary blue ocean political map, highlighting Earth's different country boundaries with complimentary pastel colors.
The map takes on attributes of a physical map when the globe is illuminated. Aspects of a physical map of Earth shows the tall mountain ranges and variations of the Earth's surface with subtle 3D shading. The sky blue ocean color of the political map becomes slightly more complex with a flip of the switch, with lighter to darker shades surfacing to illustrate the water's depth. Choose this hand crafted Columbus Kiel Illuminated Glass Desktop Globe to get an artisanal model that will last a lifetime! The efficient and robust size of the world globe makes it an excellent addition to a desk, book shelf, coffee table or tabletop.
This globe is awesome. The ball is huge and made of glass. Couldn't be happy.
