The Obelisk I (One) Floor Globe, a combination of two woods, cherry and maple, is a striking adaptation of one of Mr. Wright’s vase designs. This one was one of several concepts that he developed in 1929 for Leerdam Fabrique in Germany. It was originally to be produced in high quality glass but was never manufactured due to its complexity.
Globe ball is a highly detailed 16" globe with raised relief mountains, and features over 4000 place name labels. Current cartographic map detail is attractively colored with parchment-colored 'antique oceans' and complimentary earthy-tones. Globe is surrounded by a high quality die cast meridian, fully calibrated in 360° surrounding the sphere.
