The Cambridge Globe takes inspiration from the Queen Anne tradition of design with its elegant, three-legged stand. The walnut-finish, hardwood base effortlessly lifts the 16 inch world globe to a height of 38 inches tall. The model's sphere is gimbal mounted to the thinly styled 360 degree meridian. The Cambridge can be rotated vertically to fully examine the richly detailed geographic information. The parchment style globe is filled with the hallmarks of vintage maps; compass roses and cartouches abound, surrounded by an old fashioned color scheme. The fine script of the place names, delicate and black, is written clearly across the multicolored political map. However, despite the antique quality of this floor globe, the geographical information is entirely current.
The Replogle globe features a raised relief. That means that the epic mountain ranges that populate the earth's landmasses are rendered three dimensionally. Run a hand across this world globe and notice the unevenness of the sphere's surface, representing the rugged topography of planet Earth. The sultry colors of the political map compliment the rich brown hue of the Queen Anne base, making this sophisticated Replogle Cambridge Floor Globe a must-have for the classically inclined. Its timeless appeal inspires a passion for the brilliant cartography.
The insert in the center support that fastens the globe to the stand had deformed threads. I had to remove the insert and re- tap the hole with a 1/4 20 tap and then re-assemble the insert to the support.
It works fine.
What I like about this globe is that I can swivel the ball up and down, along with rotating it to inspect the countries of interest.
