The Replogle Salem Desktop Globe is an interesting new offering from the storied American manufacturer that wows with its "Old World" charm. The 12 inch globe sits on a two toned hardwood base, reaching 16 inches high total. The stand alternates between a walnut and natural finish, giving the model a unique texture. A brass plated semi-meridian supports the globe, and showcases latitudinal degree markings.
The 21st century geography is given a nostalgic spin by the parchment-style ocean of this political map. Thousands of current place names are presented in a traditional fashion. The antique-colored oceans are complimented by the soft but vivid earth tones of the landmasses and their respective nations. Small drawings of sailboats are interspersed across the oceans, illustrating the routes of pioneering explorers as they navigate the beige waters! Legends are displayed in extravagant colors, along with the magnificent compass roses and cartouches. The exciting, new Replogle Piedmont Desktop Globe is a quality model that leaves a lasting impression with its classic design and meticulous contemporary cartography. Whether it's destined for the home, office or school, this world globe is a fitting compliment to a desktop, tabletop, bookshelf or coffee table.
I love the Salem's old fashioned map. Looks great in the home!
