The passion for exploration is epitomized in the charismatic National Geographic Eaton III Floor Globe! No other globe personifies the National Geographic ethos of cartographical accuracy and timeless style like the Eaton III. The large 16 inch globe is supported by an adjustable hardwood stand, styled after a surveyor's tripod. At its lowest height, the world globe stands 41 inches on the tripod, and 52 inches at its highest point. The walnut-finish of the hardwood tripod is accented by tasteful brass-plated accents.
The sphere is framed by a 360 degree antique brass meridian, which is gimbal-mounted to the stand. The floor globe features a raised relief, meaning that the planet's topography is rendered three dimensionally on the map, breaking up the smooth texture of the sphere. The beautiful design of the model is topped off by National Geographic's "Classic Series" map. The completely up to date cartography of the political map is displayed in a nostalgic style. The Eaton III features an antique parchment style color scheme. The beige colored oceans are complimented by the various soft hues of the planet's countries. The Eaton III Floor Globe is one of the very finest National Geographic models manufactured in collaboration with Replogle. The swashbuckling Indian Jones-esque bravado of this world globe makes it an essential tool for the pioneering spirit.
Yes, it's a beautiful globe. However, assembly, which should be easy, is a problem. The threaded sleeve in the tripod was pressed in both too deep and off kilter. The instructions tell you to screw the whole globe into the tripod but that's impossible even for two people when your trying to hold the globe steady while trying to line it up with cockeyed threads. Finally had to take the globe off the support meridians and then re-attach it afterwards. Poor testing and quality control.
Much nicer than the picture, very handsome piece of workmanship.
The globe arrived exactly as pictured. Gorgeous!
Quick delivery, absolutely beautiful globe. I'm very impressed!
This is the coolest National geographic globe I saw when I was looking for them. It looks great in my house. I love it, highly recommended.
