The Columbus Osnabruck Illuminated Floor Globe has a dazzling presence, with its wishbone shaped, smooth walnut stand supporting the magnificent sphere. The scent of real wood emanates from the curved base, which features the highest quality craftsmanship. Surrounding the globe itself is a circular full brass meridian. Adorning the meridian is a fine calligraphy script that marks the planet's latitudinal calibrations. The globe is 20 inches in diameter and is made from hand-blown glass. Only the skilled craftspeople at Columbus could make a glass sphere of this size and of such excellent quality. The globe is gimbal-mounted to the stand, meaning that it can be swiveled up and down to suit the perspective of the viewer. The glass allows the model's internal illumination to emanate in a sultry, warm glow, and lets the meticulous geographical detail of the map radiate from the floor globe.
Together with the base, the model stands 47 inches tall. The Osnabruck sports Columbus' DUO map. When it is not lit, a beautiful political map is displayed. The various colors of the planet's countries are contrasted against the cool blue ocean hue. When the Columbus floor globe is illuminated, the political map takes on qualities of a physical map. The previously uniform color of the ocean exhibits the subtle hues of the uneven depth of the ocean's floor. The pastel colors of the political map become slightly muted to the warm earthy tones of the planet's landmasses. The tasteful and stunning Columbus Osnabruck Illuminated Floor Globe is a stately gem with its nautically inspired color scheme and striking poise. As a treasure in the Columbus line, this startling globe will impress for a lifetime to come.
The Osnabruck is the coolest globe I've ever seen. Its amazing wish one stand is smooth and incredibly well crafted. Still the centerpiece is the glass globe, which is even more beautiful when its illuminated.
