All metal construction combines with a timeless design form to create what we would call an instant classic. The austere, steely colored stand is appointed with a highly detailed, blue ocean political globe to attract explorers of all ages. The stand construction, somehow reminiscent of playground equipment, along with its attractive blue ocean globe ball, has made the Trafalgar globe a very popular choice for schools.
The information packed, blue ocean globe ball boasts over 4000 place name labels, and features extra touches such as raised relief mountains and soft shaded political borders. Relief mountains enable a tactile experience for curious fingers, and the soft shaded borders make for a refined look to the political map. Each globe ball is made from 100% reclaimed paperfiber.
Expansive 16" diameter sphere is surrounded by a pewter finished, calibrated die-cast meridian. Globe stand and meridian ring are designed to allow globe ball to be spun and rotated in any direction, enabling easy examination of southern areas. Original purchaser of globe is also qualified to participate in the factory-direct updatable globe program. This entitles a customer to purchase a replacement, updated globe ball when needed, at a greatly reduced cost. This adds value to the overall package, and means that you can always be up to date in today's changing world.
