Commander II Floor Globe & Desk Globe

About This Globe

The Commander II features a beautiful antique globe ball that is both attractive and practical. This statement globe is marvellous at capturing the attention of all who see it.

The entirely up-to-date, stylish 40cm (16’’) globe ball on this product is fully gyromatic, meaning that you will be able to view this stunning globe from every angle. The map features raised relief, allowing you to feel the mountain-tops at your fingertips. The globe ball is made using traditional techniques used for centuries, making the final product perfectly imperfect, filled with its own unique features.

The political cartography highlights country borders through colourful land masses, which are really emphasised by the beautiful antique coloured oceans. This particular map also features over 4,000 pieces of information. Another striking feature of the Commander II is the illustrations of voyages and vessels of great explorers, starting with the Vikings in the North, through to the Tudors, and, of course, the voyage of the Beagle in the 1830s.

The handsome wooden base and pedestal of the Commander II is finished in rich walnut. An exciting and more versatile feature of this particular globe is that it can be converted into a desk globe. Simply by removing the centre post, the Commander II converts from a 38" high floor model to a convenient table globe. This adaptable globe will enhance and enrich any home or office environment.
