The Antique Ocean Diplomat Illuminated Floor Globe is a colossal masterpiece in globe manufacturing, impressive in its perfection. Replogle has well over a half a century experience in globe production under its belt, and everything that the company has learnt over that time culminates in the awesome Diplomat. This is the ultimate world globe: the gorgeous antique styled political map features over 20,000 place-names, making it the most detailed globe on planet earth.
This hand-crafted symphony features beautiful illumination, ten-color cartography, hand-cut, hand-applied map gores, and a solid brass, manually-engraved meridian. The skilled craftspeople at the American Replogle facility constructed this mammoth work of art meticulously by hand, drawing from decades of experience.
Despite the classic artisan design of the Diplomat, it showcases modern technology. Merely touching the full 360 degree meridian of the Replogle globe sets the internal illumination aglow. The luminous, sultry colors burst forth from this geographical wonder, setting the room ablaze with its vibrant display.
This Replogle Diplomat Illuminated Floor Globe features a parchment colored ocean. Each country on this political map is colored with a complimentary soft hue, thoughtfully designed with the neighboring color scheme in mind. Cartographical features like water currents, shipping lanes and every other sort of geographic detail imaginable fits snuggly on this exquisite work.
The sphere itself is a massive 32 inches in diameter, but stands 51 inches tall when supported by its handcrafted, solid mahogany cradle. The stand is hand rubbed with a lustrous walnut-finish, bringing out the enthralling deep brown shade of the wood. The four legs of the base prop up a horizontal 360 degree ring that encircles the sphere.
There is simply no other globe like the Antique Ocean Replogle Diplomat Illuminated Floor Globe. This behemoth is truly the top of the line, and unparalleled the world over. This epic model belongs in a public space with a lot of foot traffic, so that the impressive world globe gets the curious investigation it deserves.
I work for a university, we bought the Diplomat for our campus. This is the mother of all globes. Its incredibly useful for various departments. It has an unbelievable amount of locations. When night falls we illuminate the Diplomat and it looks beautiful.
