The Blue Ocean Zoffoli Mercatore 20 Inch Floor Globe is an elegant product of Italian craftsmanship. The 20 inch world globe is framed in an elaborate walnut-finish cradle, styled in a classical European tradition. The brass-plated meridian that frames the globe is gimbal-mounted to the stand and features latitudinal degree markings. The unit, standing 35.5 inches high, is based on the model's namesake, Gerardus Mercator, an innovative 16th century cartographer and globe maker. The nostalgically inspired stand is offset by the modern, blue ocean political map. The swirling blue and white hue of the waters is set against the appealing soft pastel shades of the landmasses.
The Zoffoli floor globe is made with an advanced printing technology that enables the globe to maintain its vibrant colors despite exposure to ultraviolet rays. Additionally, the world globe's country names are presented in their native languages, with the English translation included in parenthesis. For example, India is, "Bharat (India)." The Blue Ocean Zoffoli Mercatore 20 Inch Floor Globe boldly embodies the very finest of the company's Italian manufacturing. Its tasteful blue ocean political map, supported by the classically influenced walnut-finish base, makes this a sight to behold. Bring the world's grandeur into your home or office, with the stunning Zoffoli world globe.
