This globe stand is an authentic reproduction from a drawing found in the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation archives. It is an unidentified concept for one of the Prairie Homes that Mr. Wright designed in the early 1900s. The only marking on the drawing is in his handwriting and says, "Something like this." The proportions, and interpretation, of the drawing were calculated based on the scale of other drawings from this time period.
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.
