The Italian manufactured Antique Ocean Zoffoli Colombo 20 Inch Floor Globe features a striking contemporary design that contrasts with its nostalgic map. The 20 inch globe is held 49.5 inches tall by the steel stand. The modern base impresses with its uniquely composed wishbone shape, which seems to be poised in an akimbo-like stance. The stand is colored with a copper-hued paint, which was applied using a high-temperature treatment that is also used for luxury cars. A sand-colored aluminum meridian frames the world globe and is embellished by latitudinal degree markings. The 360 degree meridian is gimbal mounted to the frame, making both the north and south poles of the unit easily accessible for investigation.
The antique style political map features a parchment colored ocean that is complimented by the earth-toned hues of the landmasses. Despite the nostalgic aesthetic, the place names are completely up to date. The political map was printed using a technological process that makes them immune to ultraviolet radiation damage. The Antique Ocean Zoffoli Colombo 20 Inch Floor Globe's innovative design bespeaks its Italian origins. Displaying cutting edge flair, this memorable unit is indicative of the solid cartography and stellar composition that the manufacturer has built its reputation on.
I highly recommend this globe. It would get 5 stars if it was also illuminated though!
