The Replogle Marin Floor Globe is a marvel in the manufacturer's line, with a unique composition that seems to achieve the impossible. Despite the globe's towering size, there is an unmistakable lightness to its design. The 16 inch globe is held 39 inches tall by the rustic-finish wrought iron stand. The narrow base gives the model an almost weightless quality, despite the sturdy nature of its metal construction. Its three legs support a horizontal 360 degree cradle that carries the full die-cast meridian. The meridian is gimbal mounted to the stand, meaning that the world globe can swivel to suit the perspective of the viewer. This model has a raised relief, which means that the rugged topography of Earth's surface are represented on the map three dimensionally.
The antique style political map is made in Replogle's "Classic Series" tradition. The floor globe's contemporary cartographical information is presented in a classical style. In addition to delicately letter place names, other vintage characteristics of antique maps are included on the Marin, like compass roses and cartouches. The towering Replogle Marin Floor Globe delights with its ingenious design. Its slight appearance and robust construction makes this a singular achievement from the American manufacturer sure to be cherished for years to come.
My Marin globe just arrived and I love its stylish base and large antique political map.
