A unique new globe design from National Geographic featuring beautifully detailed cartography and elegant solid wood stand with distinctive woodwork design. The large 16" raised relief globe ball rests in a die-cast, fully calibrated gold toned metal meridian. The meridians mounting allows the globe to be tilted in either direction within its stand. This solid wood stand represents a finely crafted piece of furniture featuring walnut finish, in-lay carvings on the legs, and a heavy wrought iron stretcher.
The 16" diameter globe ball features crisp classic parchment colored oceans and utilizes National Geographic's world renowned cartography recognizable from any of the maps featured in an issue of National Geographic Magazine.
Globe details include major place names, countries represented in contrasting colors, and delineated U.S. states. Shaded relief provides visual details of the ocean floor and mountain ranges. Raised relief provides a better perspective of topographic features. The globe also features a useful international time dial to assist in determining time anywhere in the world.
