The stately Columbus Bremen Royal Illuminated Floor Globe 16 Inch impresses with its classic design. The 16 inch glass ball reaches 47 inches tall on its Wenge wood and steel pedestal stand. A tubular semi-meridian holds the sphere at a 23.5 angle atop the base. The handsome combination of the wood and stainless steel stand is an appealing accent to the world globe.
The classically styled ROYAL map has a beige-ocean which calls to mind old fashioned cartography. Filled to the brim with current cartographic information like place names, shipping routes and water currents, the ROYAL map contrasts the multicolored landmasses with the antique-ocean backdrop. Turn on this illuminated globe's light switch and observe as its brilliant colors radiate outwards, while parts of a physical map take shape on the sphere's surface.
The 16 inch glass was hand blown by expert artisans. The glass material allows greater clarity in the illumination and cartography. After making the globe, the skilled craftspeople then hand cut and applied the ROYAL map to its exterior. The artistic quality of the Bremen Royal makes each model a one of a kind decorative flourish designed to last a lifetime. Bask in the handcrafted nature of the Columbus Bremen Royal Illuminated Floor Globe 16 Inch! Whether heading for the house or office, these wonderful world globes from Columbus will be cherished works of art for many years to come.
The beige globe and the brown base makes this model timeless. Very pleased with my choice. It arrived swiftly and looks great in my home :)
