Commander II Floor Globe
Commander II Floor Globe & Desk Globe
About This Globe
The Commander II with Antique Globe Ball is a floor globe that is attractive and practical. The Commander II summons the attention and admiration of all who see it.
The completely up-to-date, stylish 40cm (16") globe ball is fully gyromatic, so you are able to view this beautifully understated globe from all angles. This impressive ball features raised relief, and the antique coloured oceans are complimented by colourful land masses. The globe ball is made using traditional techniques. It has an up to date map with over 4,000 place names and pieces of information. The pale blue oceans are complemented by colourful land masses and borders.
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, are represented pictorially. Fully gyromatic, you are able to view this beautifully understated globe from all angles from the comfort of your arm chair.
A handsome wooden base and pedestal, finished in rich walnut completes the effect. By simply removing the centre post, the Edinburgh 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.
