The San Marcos Tabletop World Globe
 Frank Lloyd Wright Collection Globes

By Replogle.  In 1928, Frank Lloyd Wright began working with a former apprentice on a luxurious resort commissioned by Alexander J. Chandler: the San Marcos of the Desert.  Unfortunately, this magnificent hotel was never constructed due to the 1929 stock market crash, though luckily the surviving building designs and the interior renderings contain a variety of interesting furniture and decorative features. The major public spaces of the resort were the main dining room and lounge in the center of the building.  The dining room was to have a richly faceted ceiling of copper and glass, recalling the architect's famed Imperial Hotel.  This adapted globe stand showcases the 60 degree angled legs and the circular top of a small accent table designed for this special Dining Pavilion.

Globe ball is the highest quality 12" political globe from Replogle, featuring over 4,000 place name labels and is made from 100% reclaimed paperfiber. Set in a beautifully crafted walnut base, this globe will make an excellent addition to your home or office.

This package also qualifies the buyer to participate in the factory-direct updatable globe program which allows one to replace the globe with a new, updated globe when needed.
