Spin the globe or touch the sumptuous curves of the solid mahogany stand - it will be hard to keep your hands off this handsome floor globe by Eureka Globes. Designed for easy reference, it becomes a visual focal point in any room with its graceful lines and rich, hand-rubbed finish. Authentic watercolored countries are labeled in the 18th century style of gently curved type. Traditions of early European mapmakers also inspired aged parchment oceans labeled in gold LusterPrint™ ink with gilded coastal vignettes. Embossed ships and an ornate cartouche represent the highest form of cartographic design from the masters, made current to show the latest geographic information worldwide.
With over 3000 easy to read place names, the longer you look, the more you will see. A full meridian allows the globe to rotate 360 degrees and spin about the axis for complete access to every part of the globe. Plated in an antique brass finish to complement the globe, a hidden weight in the South Pole returns the meridian to its correct position naturally. The stand's exclusive design incorporates graceful proportions of Dutch fine furniture craftsmanship in each piece. Built from plantation-grown mahogany, the solid wood stand is destined to be a treasured heirloom.
