The Envoy
14" Illuminated Floor Globe from National Geographic

The stylish, walnut-finished wood floor stand, while beautiful in its own regard, does not distract from the outstanding illuminated National Geographic world globe it proudly holds. Standing at an impressive 39 inches overall, the Envoy will be the envy of the neighborhood. The highly detailed 14" illuminated sphere has a lovely dual-map feature that shows the political world when turned off, and reveals a richly-colored physical world map when turned on, all using the familiar, award winning National Geographic cartography. The 14" globe ball size allows for more detail than the more typical 12" diameter size; over 30% more detail to be exact. The Envoy is both a lovely piece of furniture and a work of art.
