The Antique Ocean Zoffoli Amerigo Vespucci 16 Inch Floor Globe is a fitting testament to the pioneering explorer famous for demonstrating that the New World was an altogether new continent, rather than part of Asia. As if having both North and South America named after him was not enough, Zoffoli pays further tribute to the legendary cartographer through the beautiful floor globe. The antique ocean world globe is 16 inches in diameter and is held 33.4 inches high by the four legged chestnut-finish stand. The full meridian is gimbal-mounted to the 360 degree horizontal cradle that frames the sphere. The brass-colored metal meridian is encircled by the sleek hardwood stand's, maintaining a simple look.
The Vespucci showcases a beautiful political map. The antique hue is accented by the earth-toned colors of the continents. In addition to the world globe's contemporary place names other cartographical information, like the oceans' water currents and a latitude and longitude grid, also span the map. The Italian manufacturer's stylish eye for design is on extravagant display with the Antique Ocean Zoffoli Amerigo Vespucci 16 Inch Floor Globe. The globe's decisive cartography is an apt homage to the late explorer, who surely would have put this world globe to good use had it been around in his time!
