REVIEW FROM ULTIMATE GLOBES STAFF: One of the first thing we noticed when reviewing the Diplomat globe is how stately it appears. The stand does not over power the view of the globe as you will see with other floor styles. It is evident that the stand is hand crafted in the USA by the quality and sturdy nature as well as the care given during the stain and finish process of the hand crafted wood, this is not your typical mass produced particle board stand from Asia.

As you notice from the pictures, this is a cradle mounted globe which allows the globe ball to smoothly spin east to west or west to east but also like a steering whee, round and round, allowing you to see all parts of the globe. This is not to be confused with a full swing meridian you can push forward and back. The purpose is to provide the support needed for the globe to move freely and the cradle mount is the best approach. The numbered brass meridian is also hand made and etched with the lat/long degree markings. The meridian rests in small notches on the inside of the stand and also on a small roller that is hidden in the center post on the bottom.

Although the globe comes with a built in light kit that serves to backlight the globe ball from within, we have had several corporate customers that choose to order the globe without the illumination feature as it requires a close outlet and they wanted to feature the globe in a location where electric was not so convenient. If you have this need simply contact us and we will be happy to place a special order without this feature.

There is much to be said about the map used but we will keep it just to the main points. It is the most detailed production globe on the market with over 20,000 points of interest, named places, etc. Most 16 inch globes max out at around 4,500 named places, so it is substantially more. It is a political map showing the country and political boundaries with individual color shadings. It is pretty easy to read given the size and the back light does help to enhance some of the text and colors when on. The map is added to a large acrylic sphere in strips with small over lap by hand, and there are only a couple of employees that handle this level of craftsmanship. Once applied it can take several days to cure once the finish has been added. The map color is available in blue or antique and we can order either way for you.

IN OUR OPINION: This is a one of a kind globe, and it is very hard to find a globe this size. Because production is limited, it is fairly rare to find them, so you do get something very special. Ultimate Globes sells this item to both private residences and corporate clients. With its large size, it is important to make sure it fits the space you are looking to fill. The globe ball is right at 32 inches, so your door or window size depending on how you will bring it in will need to allow for this. Most corporate offices have 36 inch door widths which will be fine. The stand although about 40 inches wide can easily be placed on its side without the globe and brought through a door. If your budget and space allow the Diplomat makes a great addition!

Great purchase! October 27, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from SAINT JOSEPH, MO United States  
This was an excellent purchase for our public library.  We especially appreciate working with the manufacturer to get a light oak stain on the wood rather than the dark mahogany.  A large floor globe communicates a world perspective like nothing else.

Wonderful November 9, 2014
Reviewer: Mike Tagert from Atlanta, GA  
The globe is amazing, I purchased the globe for my home office and it is exactly what I was hoping for. My wife and I love all of the detail as we travel quite a bit and it is easy to find each place we have been. She purchased small round stickers in three different colors and we are placing them on each location we have traveled, one color for her, one for me and one for the places we have traveled together. The map is current and the stand is beautifully finished. Delivery was excellent, we needed the globe shipped on a specific date and the customer service was able to accommodate this. I would definitely recommend both the globe and Ultimate Globes.
