This globe is beautiful, the antique style is stunning and it is of high quality. I decided to purchase this particular globe as I like the antique look and also liked the idea of the 'raised relief' where the mountain ranges can be felt by running the finger tips across the surface.
Overall this is a very attractive and accurate depiction of our world. The text is very clear and there is a 'Globe reference guide' booklet that comes with the globe that is very useful, explaining how distances are measured, how longitude and latitude work, about solar and standard time and also tells you how you can find out how old your globe is.
I ordered and it arrived the very next day. Very happy customer and highly recommended.
