The attractive design and educational geography of the Columbus Rothenburg Illuminated Desktop Globe 16 Inch makes it an essential model! The 16 inch blue ocean globe sits 20 inches high atop the stainless steel base. A thin, minimally styled half meridian holds the blue ocean globe at a 23.5 degree tilt. The sleek, modern design of the Rothenburg lets the world globe's stellar cartography take center stage.

This Columbus desktop globe features the manufacturer's classic DUO map. With the light off, the blue ocean political map is displayed, with the pastel patchwork of countries on the landmasses popping out when set against the blue ocean background. However, flipping on the world globe's light switch lets some of the planet's physical properties appear faintly on the sphere's surface.

The map was hand applied to the acrylic sphere by Columbus' skilled craftspeople. The DUO map was manually cut into gores, which were then glued to the sphere in an exacting and unforgiving artisanal process. The hand crafted nature of the Columbus world globe makes it each model memorable and unique. Bring the artistic beauty of the Columbus Rothenburg Illuminated Desktop Globe 16 Inch into your home or office! Packed to the brim with cartographic value, the modern but still classic style of the world globe makes it entirely irresistible.
