The Italian made Blue Ocean Zoffoli Colombo 20 Inch Floor Globe features a breathtaking design that embodies the manufacturer's contemporary ethos. The 20 inch sphere reaches 49.5 inches high with the steel base included. The curved stand thrills with its wishbone shape, which seems to be held in an akimbo-like position. The base is shaded with a copper-color coat, which was applied using a high-temperature process that is typically used for high-end cars. An aluminum meridian supports the sphere and is ornamented with latitudinal degree calibrations. The full, sand-colored meridian is gimbal mounted to the base, meaning that it can be easily swiveled up and down for closer examination.
The blue ocean political map is accented the earth-toned patchwork of colors that decorates the continents. The Colombo's exemplary map with its up to date geography, is printed using a technological process that makes the map resistant to ultraviolet radiation, adding to its lasting value. The state of the art construction of the Blue Ocean Zoffoli Colombo 20 Inch Floor Globe makes it an impressive model that is sure to be treasured for years, even generations to come. Exhibiting its modern flair, this Italian manufactured world globe personifies the excellent cartography and astonishing composition that Zoffoli is known for.
The globe is an excellent buy. However, the stand needs to be adjusted so that there is a tighter fit on the globe so that when someone spins the globe to look at another location if will not easily fall from the holders. Twice in the first hour this globe was being rotated slowly and it fell from the holders. The stand needs to be tighter to protect this from happening. A result is a damaged globe if you are not very careful.
This is a very large globe ball. Easy to read and the stand gives it a nice, modern look. Fits perfectly with our modern decor.
The cool wishbone shape of the Colombo is what attracted me to this one. It just arrived today and I highly recommend it. The globe has an incredibly smooth surface that is a joy to examine.
