This classic model will fit any decor. The Explorer
features a walnut-finished wood base and a gold toned semi-meridian. As with all National Geographic illuminated globes,
the electrical cord is routed through the semi meridian and base for a
cleaner overall look. This model also features National Geographic globes'
exceptional dual-map feature that shows both political as well as physical
information in very attractive colors. The Explorer is the perfect accent
for any home or office.
