The Columbus Salzburg Illuminated Desktop Globe 13 Inch is a prime example of the German company's superb design and quality manufacturing. The 13 inch world globe sits 17 inches tall upon its Makassar wood base and brass colored stainless steel semi-meridian. The dark brown from the wood stand is a tasteful accent to the narrow, flatly styled meridian, which features a time dial at the world globe's apex.
The Salzburg features Columbus' classic ROYAL map, which delights with its nostalgic flavor. The antique ocean hue is set against the earth-toned mosaic of the landmasses on the political map. When the desktop globe becomes illuminated, aspects of a relief map become subtly apparent on the sphere's surface, adding to its rich cartographical value.
The Columbus world globe is the product of expert craftsmanship. The acrylic globe is covered in a ROYAL map that was hand cut and manually glued to the sphere. This incredibly time intensive process is what gives the Columbus globes the top notch quality that they have built their excellent reputation on. Over 100 years of handcrafted globe manufacturing has gone into creating the beautiful Columbus Salzburg Illuminated Desktop Globe 13 Inch. For interiors that feature a more traditional or classic decor, there is this beautiful world globe, which belongs in your expertly designed home or office.
I chose this model because I liked the wood base to go along with the royal map. It came in the mail yesterday and it's a very impressive model. Thanks for facilitating my order, Columbus Globes.
