The Lafayette Globe
16" Illuminated Floor Globe

The 33" "chair-side" height makes the LaFayette a very practical addition to the home or office. Imagine sitting in your comfortable chair watching the news, with a highly detailed and current world globe accessible at your fingertips.  Everything you look for in a globe is here; a 16", illuminated globe ball in your choice of blue or antique oceans, walnut-finish base, and full die-cast meridian, with painted finish. Nicely detailed stand features casters (roll away wheels) for more convenient locating of the globe. Blue ocean version includes raised relief and a dual (physical/political) map feature that reveals political coloration when the light is turned on. This is a feature that is uncommon in an illuminated globe. The antique ocean version does not have raised relief, but instead uses a sphere with hand-positioned paper gores. The LaFayette is a globe that will be used and admired for years to come. Replogle Globe.

Please note that illuminated globes have a cord routed from the southern axis of the globe ball. The photographer has hidden the cord in these photos. Because of the inclusion of an electrical cord, the meridian ring must rotate within slots in the stand instead of pivoting around a pin attached to the meridian as most non-illuminated globes do.
