Impeccable craftsmanship and design collide in the beautiful Columbus Zurich Illuminated Floor Globe 20 Inch. The model's colossal size makes it one of Columbus' most impressive models. The glass world globe is 20 inches in diameter and held 53 inches tall on its stand. The mahogany pedestal base supports the brass semi-meridian, which frames the sphere and features latitudinal degree markings.
The floor globe features Columbus' innovative DUO map technology. Featuring two maps in one, the unlit globe showcases the planet's political boundaries. Along with a myriad of place names, the pale pastel shades from the continents pop out when set against the blue ocean color. Flip on the light switch and watch as properties of a physical map subtly emerge on the world globe while the sphere's beautiful colors cascade into the room.
The sizable 20 inch sphere was hand blown by Columbus' skilled artisans. The 100 year old company remains the only manufacturer around that still hand blows glass globes. Adding to its stellar craftsmanship, the DUO map was hand cut and applied to the floor globe. The hand crafted nature of these world globes ensures every model's unique flavor and solid construction. Celebrate the elegant grace of the Columbus Zurich Illuminated Floor Globe 20 Inch! Whether intended for the home or office, this extraordinary Zurich world globe is sure to delight for years to come with its classic style and timeless appeal.
