Reminiscent of parchment-colored globes of centuries past, the Weimar
Globe combines classic styling with up-to-date cartography. When
illuminated, the political, parchment-colored map is transformed into a
warmly-lit illustration of the earth's physical features. Thousands of
place names make the 20" tall, German-made Weimar Globe an excellent
geographic reference tool.
This stunning model begins as a hand-blown, 16" diameter, glass sphere
produced by Columbus Globe's in-house glass artisans. Next, the
nostalgic, antique-style map, drafted by master cartographers, is then
hand-applied to the sphere by skilled craftsmen. Finally, the superb
sphere is mounted onto the elegant, brass-colored, stainless steel base
and meridian, awaiting placement in your home or office, where it will
forever be admired by all who behold its distinctive beauty.
