The dapper style and detailed geography of the Columbus Tuebingen Illuminated Desktop Globe - 20 Inch makes it an extraordinary model! The 20 inch acrylic globe sits 24 inches tall atop the stainless steel stand. A half-meridian holds the illuminated globe at a 23.5 degree tilt. The sleek design of the Tuebingen's base allows the desktop globe's sharp cartography to take center stage. The transforming DUO map changes from political to physical when the world globe comes alight. When the world globe is not illuminated, the political map is showcased, which sets the pastel mosaic of nations against the blue ocean color. A plethora of place names and other cartographical details populate the map. However, when the illuminated globe's light is activated, parts of the planet's physical characteristics appear faintly on the Tuebingen's surface.
The map was hand cut and glued to the acrylic world globe by trained artisans. Columbus' craftspeople give each individual model attention, ensuring their high quality. The handcrafted manufacturing of the world globe makes each model a singular work of art. Bring the tremendous Columbus Tuebingen Illuminated Desktop Globe - 20 Inch into your home or office! Overflowing with cartographic value, this world globe is sure to mesmerize for many for years to come with its exemplary style and geography.
