Replogle has crafted its masterstroke with the magnificent Blue Ocean Diplomat Illuminated Floor Globe. The grandeur of this meticulously detailed map is on audacious display with the massive 32 inch sphere, held 51 inches high by the exquisitely handsome hand-crafted solid mahogany cradle. Over 20,000 place names populate the Diplomat, giving it the unique honor of being the most detailed globe in the world. The staggeringly accurate and up to date political map is hand-cut and hand-applied to the sphere by Replogle's skilled artisans.
The blue ocean map features ten-color cartography. The beautiful light blue shade of the ocean is offset by the complimentary hues of the political map, artfully arranged to create a harmonious symphony of color. Every cartographical detail that could fit comfortably on this map was; an incredible amount of place names, along with other geographical information like water current movements and shipping lanes were included on the Diplomat.
Framing this gorgeous world globe is a solid brass, full meridian that is hand engraved with latitudinal markings. Despite the traditional artisan construction of this epic globe, it also features a modern edge. This illuminated globe is lit by simply touching the brass meridian. When touched, the internal light bulb is activated, sending the flurry of warm, earthy colors radiating into the room. Watch as the Blue Ocean Replogle Diplomat Illuminated Floor Globe bathes a room in its sumptuous luminous glow.
Surrounding the meridian is a horizontal mahogany ring. Four legs support the cradle, all of which were manually constructed by Replogle's skilled craftspeople. The base is hand rubbed with a luscious walnut-finish, highlighting the beautiful rich brown shade of the wood. The manual composition of this Replogle gem necessitates decades of experience from the company's trained artisans.
Make no mistake about it; the Diplomat is the apex of globe manufacturing. Its imposing size, staggering wealth of geographical information, impeccable design and awe inspiring construction makes it an achievement in globe making yet to be equaled. Replogle has solidified its reputation as America's premier globe maker with the classic and extraordinary Blue Ocean Diplomat Illuminated Floor Globe.
