The luxurious Columbus Potsdam Illuminated Floor Globe 16 Inch shows off the traditional ROYAL map. The 16 inch acrylic sphere sits 47 inches tall on the brass colored stand. Atop the pedestal arm of the base is a semi-meridian, which holds the world globe at a 23.5 degree angle and showcases a time dial.
The thin style of the floor globe lets the classic map take center stage. The parchment style antique-ocean map features beige waters and complementary earth-toned colors of the landmasses. Despite the nostalgic design of the political map it features up to date cartography. Flipping on the light switch allows 3D shading of the planet's mountains and underwater ocean ridges to take shape on sphere in a subtle fashion, along with the radiant colors of the illuminated globe.
The ROYAL map was hand cut and applied to the floor globe by trained craftspeople in an incredibly unforgiving process. The detailed attention that each model gets from Columbus is what makes each world globe a work of art. The Columbus Potsdam Illuminated Floor Globe 16 Inch is an extraordinary model from the high end manufacturer. Place this antiquely styled world globe in your home or office to add a decorative wonder that is sure to fascinate many for years to come with its classic design and cartography.
Classic style, great royal map and beautiful stand. Very pleased with my choice and the swift ordering process, thanks!
