The handsome Blue Ocean Zoffoli Mercatore 24 Inch Floor Globe exhibits the very finest qualities of Italian craftsmanship. The 24 inch world globe is supported by an ornately designed walnut-finish cradle, styled in a nostalgic European fashion. The brass-plated 360 degree meridian encircles the sphere and is gimbal-mounted to the base. That means the globe can be swiveled up and down for close investigation. The world globe reaches 37.5 inches tall, and is inspired by the model's namesake, Gerardus Mercator, a pioneering 16th century cartographer and globe maker. White and blue combine on the ocean of the political map, playing against the mild earth-toned shades of the continents. An abundance of modern place names make this an engrossing geographical spectacle sure to inspire hours of investigation.
The Zoffoli world globe showcases the Italian manufacturer's distinctive map, which is made using a printing technique that allows the globe to retain its vivid colors despite exposure to UV rays. Furthermore, country names are labeled in their native languages on the world globe, with the English translation included in parenthesis. For example, Russia is, "Rossiya (Russia)." The Blue Ocean Zoffoli Mercatore 24 Inch Floor Globe is an elegant illustration of the of the manufacturer's legendary Italian design. Bring the world into your home with the breathtaking Zoffoli floor globe.
