Replogle built its reputation on models like the stunning Colonial Desktop Globe. The beautiful walnut finish base cradles the 12 inch globe to reach 17 inches tall. A full die-cast meridian surrounds the globe itself, featuring latitudinal markings. Four wooden legs support a hardwood horizontal ring, surrounding the elegant desktop globe. The entire model draws from the Early American furniture style. The Replogle Colonial Desktop Globe's map itself is in the "Old World" tradition. The parchment-colored oceans are set against the faded pastel colors of the political map. The world globe features a raised relief, meaning that rather than having shading to illustrate the planet's peaks and valleys, the globe itself renders those physical details in three dimensions.
Classic map artifacts like ornate compass roses and cartouches populate this beautiful desktop globe. Delicate drawings of early explorers' ships and their pioneering routes decorate the beige oceans. A nostalgic, fine script marks important landmarks, while a clear black text designates the smaller place names. Replogle is the definitive American globe manufacturer, and the Colonial Desktop Globe makes it clear why. The antique map matched with the handsome, complimentary hardwood stand, makes this an exemplary globe that stuns with its traditional flavor.
I bought this globe for my office, and it looks great on my desktop.
