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.
