Traditional function meets contemporary styling in this fine decorative reference globe. Borrowed from tradition, this globe features a functional, fully-calibrated, swinging brass meridian that surrounds a modern, metallic dark blue ocean acrylic globe ball. The textured pewter-finish base adds another nod to tradition, while also securely holding the modern-day globe in place. The striking contrast of dark blue oceans against the metallic gold land masses will surely seek attention in any setting. This useful reference tool will also be the spark of many interesting conversations.
Please note that this globe's color palette uses metallic gold land masses and metallic navy blue oceans. Due to the dark colors used in the oceans, and the black text labeling, some of the text labels are very low contrast & may be difficult to read. This can also be seen as a plus, as the muted text labeling results in a less cluttered look for the oceans. The image at right was taken in a very bright setting & we feel that the actual look of the globe's oceans in a typical home or office setting will be a deeper color of blue.
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.
