The Pinnacle
14" Floor Globe from National Geographic

Colored in an earth-tone palette, this illuminated 14" diameter National Geographic globe is really two globes in one. With the light off, you see country boundaries, cities, and more, all with the award winning National Geographic cartography. With the light on, you see the physical world in hand-drawn relief & amazing eye-popping physical coloration. The 18 layered printing process that make up the map and its place-names are printed on special material that won't wear off. Each globe comes with a detailed reference booklet and a signed Certificate of Authenticity. Globe has a burnished gold-tone semi-meridian, an elegant walnut-finished wood stand. The electrical cord is routed through the base instead of dangling from the south pole of the globe, making for a much more refined look.
