Sophisticated elegance from Replogle Globes. A matching wood ring and riser with rich cherry finish supported by a wrought iron stand with black matte finish make this piece a one of a kind. Globe ball uses lovely Bronze Metallic inks. Each globe has a current political map with over 4000 labels, and raised relief mountains. The Bronze Metallic ocean globe ball goes exceptionally well with the reddish hues of the horizon ring and riser. An added benefit of the Bronze Metallic globe is the effect of the relief: Because of the metallic inks used for the continents, the relief mountains can be easily seen as well as felt with fingers. You may be able to see the relief of the Bronze Metallic globe if you click on the picture at right for a larger version (look near China and India).
The tripod stand used on this globe ensures a stable stance, regardless if the surface is even or not & the sturdy wrought iron construction ensures it will hold up for a lifetime of regular use.
The fully calibrated die-cast brass meridian ring has pins to not only make the globe sit at the correct 23.5 degrees of the Earth's tilt, but also allow the globe to turn and spin in any direction. This enables unobstructed views of the southern hemisphere.
