The Columbus Weimar Illuminated Glass Desktop Globe 16 Inch features a lavish design and stunning cartography. The 16 inch sphere reaches 20 inches when cradled on its exquisite brass colored steel base and tubular semi-meridian. The golden hue of the brushed steel stand matches the colors of the political map and adds to its sophisticated style.
The nostalgic ROYAL map features an antique colored ocean which recalls the cartography of yesteryear. Packed with geographic information like contemporary place names, shipping routes and water currents, the ROYAL map sets the earth-toned patchwork of the landmasses against the beige waters. Flip on this illuminated globe's light switch and watch as some details from a physical map become apparent on the sphere's surface.
The Columbus globe is a handcrafted beauty. The large 16 inch glass sphere was hand blown by the German manufacturer's skilled artisans. Columbus remains the only company that still produces glass world globes by hand. Then, craftspeople manually cut and apply the maps to the desktop globes. The individual attention given to each model ensures their stellar quality. The Columbus Weimar Illuminated Glass Desktop Globe 16 Inch is an extraordinary addition to a desk, coffee table or bookshelf. Add this decorative and cartographic gem to your home or office to own a model that is built to last a lifetime.
Love the classic style of the Weimar globe. The large glass globe is really impressive. The traditional map design and gold base is beautiful and it looks even better when lit up. This model comes very highly recommended from me.
