Le Commandeur
12" Desktop World Globe

This handsome globe features an especially unique stand which is handcrafted from reclaimed materials. Planetary gears from automobile transmissions are a focal point of the stand, as are brass and iron architechural components which complete the package. All metal construction in the stand makes for a high quality heavyweight piece weighing in at around 10 pounds. Due to the reclaimed nature of the components which make up the stand, each individual globe will be slightly different depending on the components sourced. Each globe stand is painstakingly hand produced and signed by the original designer J.P. Roberts here in the United States. The combination of form and function is evident with this globe as it also features an adjustable swivel mechanism that allows you to tilt the globe 180 degrees for easy viewing of the southern hemisphere.

The heavyweight stand comprised of a variety of solid metals is made complete with a Replogle Leather Expedition globe ball. The stand's worn-in metal components compliment nicely with the earthy tones of the leather globe ball. The globe features subtly raised mountain relief, which enables one to tactilely feel the mountain ranges of the world.  Each globe is up to date with the most current political data. Typefaces on the genuine leather globe ball are a little larger and bolder than other reference globes.
