The simple, classic design of the Replogle Biscay Globe is a breath of fresh air. The globe is 12 inches in diameter and reaches a height of 17 inches with its natural wood base and metal half meridian included, which supports the globe. The semi-meridian features latitudinal degree markings. The Biscay's political map is fashioned in a blue ocean antique tradition. While its traditional cartographical characteristics include colorful compass roses and cartouches, the world globe features a pale blue ocean hue, unusual for maps in this style.
The raised relief of the desktop globe showcases Earth's imposing mountain ranges with three dimensional rendering. However, rather than only highlighting the planet's physical characteristics, this world globe also emphasizes political and historical attributes. Thousands of accurate and up to date place names populate this Replogle globe, making it an educational spectacle and great conversation starter. The quality design and craftsmanship of Replogle's American-made products are exemplified in this world globe. Simple, fashionable, educational and reliable, this Biscay Desktop Globe lives up to Replogle's reputation.
I purchased this globe for my 4 year old grandson. It is a good quality product at a reasonable price. The first globe was damaged in shipping and arrived broken. Dura Globe responded quickly and sent a new globe right away.
I got this for my family, to help my kid learn about geography, and so far it is been a great addition to our home.
