I bought this for my boyfriend's parents -- they like going on cruises so we thought this would be a beautiful, visual aid to planning routes round the world, and much better than a map! As it turns out, I'm so happy we bought this one out of all the possible globes available on Amazon, as it's really rather lovely! The quality of the print on the map is excellent, with a traditional colouring and feel, and the warm glow of the light inside it makes it a really attractive addition to any room. It's now being used it as a table lamp in my parents-in-laws' conservatory/study room, as it gives off a bright enough light to see what you're doing but soft enough to be relaxing. It's what you'd call a golden glow in fact, which is just want you want for a table lamp. So it now has a dual function, a lovely home decor item and a globe for studying the world!
There is a black line join round the middle of the globe, as you get on most globes, and the base has a stylish arc indent in the flat circle. The material of the base and arm holding the globe is a brushed matt bronze colour, not particularly expensive but finished to a good standard, with clean lines and smart angles. It arrives in a large box, the full size of the fully assembled globe inside, so be warned, you won't be able to hide this easily! But it wasn't heavy. I can't speak to the accuracy of the maps -- I'm not a cartographer! But the countries are very beautifully printed with muted colours and classical fonts.
It would probably be suitable in a bedroom of a child, but the reason we like it best is because it has become a functional and attractive addition to one of the rooms my boyfriend's parents use most in the house. And it's become a talking point for when guests come for dinner. A really good gift, and a much better price here on Amazon than anywhere else we looked. Very happy with our purchase!

It clearly states this globe is 28 cm, which seems to be a pretty standard size -- it's not big nor small. Yet with all the detailed information printed on it, it can be hard to find and see what you are looking for. So it's more a decorative item rather than a useful world globe.

I brought this as a Christmas present for someone and I was pleased with how it looked when they got it out of the box. The only part of it that could be improved it the frame as it looks a bit cheap. All in all this is a good globe and the way it has been aged looks really nice. I would recommend this to those that like the look of old maps but want to be up to date.
