Cartographers have utilized compass roses for centuries to illustrate the orientation of the cardinal directions on maps, including north, east, south and west, and their respective intermediate points. The beautiful Replogle Compass Rose Desktop Globe features a three dimensional compass rose as the model's base. The stand holds a die-cast semi-meridian which frames the 12 inch world globe. Together the model stands 16 inches tall. While most compass roses serve a mostly practical purpose, they have also become highly decorative, with vibrant colors and decorative outlines. The brass-plated base of this Replogle globe is designed for ornamentation, but the map itself contains lavish, antique-styled compass roses that serve more functional purposes.
The political map has a parchment style ocean. Countries are embellished in faded, earth toned colors. Finely lettered old fashioned script designates the contemporary place names, and small drawings of early explorer's sailboats populate the beige oceans. In addition to the stylish compass roses on the map, the world globe also features cartouches and legends. The Replogle Compass Rose Desktop Globe is a handsomely decorated antique style model. The beauty of old fashioned cartography is on magnificent display in this world globe, which is an excellent addition to the home, office or school.
I am very happy with the purchase of the Compass Rose globe. It was a Christmas gift for my husband and he absolutely loves it!
This world globe is my favorite. I bought it 2 weeks ago and couldn't have been more satisfied with the product and the ordering process.
