Evoking the vintage globes of the 1950's, the Replogle Orion Illuminated Desktop Globe stands out with its eye catching color scheme. Black ocean style was a popular style in the mid-20th century, and Replogle resurrects the bygone tradition with the Orion. The 12 inch world globe stands 16.5 inches tall with its solid steel base included. A die-cast semi-meridian frames the desktop globe, featuring latitudinal markings and a time dial at the model's North Pole. The black style oceans are complimented by the bright pastel hues of the planet's nations. The up to date political map contains thousands of accurate and contemporary place names. A thin, white grid spans the globe, featuring latitudinal and longitudinal information.
As if the color scheme wasn't eye catching enough, this Replogle globe also illuminates. With a simple flip of the switch, this unit sends warm and luminous rays cascading into the room. Be put at ease by this illuminated globe's glowing rays. The Replogle Orion Illuminated Desktop Globe is another winner from the esteemed American manufacturer. The black ocean design is not easily forgotten. Replogle's skill at blending classic styles with up to date cartographical information is on prime display with this amazing illuminated world globe.
Bit over priced except that at least the countries are up to date. Hard to swivel the globe, looks like a cheap fitting. The glow is dim, nice as a lamp but not easy to read.
I love this cool old fashioned world globe! Reminds me of the ones I used to see growing up.
