Product Description

Colour: Blue

Please view product image and zoom in to see the surface of the globe before purchasing this item. Based on one of the most popular globes available, this 12 inch diameter product presents the world in an tasteful blue ocean style but with modern cartography. This is a "raised relief" globe; mountain ranges can be physically felt by running fingertips over the surface of the sphere, this is a subtle but noticeable effect. Adjacent countries are coloured in a selection of soft pastel shades, to give a political colour scheme. The colour darkens at boundaries between countries, to enhance them. Seas are a duck-egg blue colour that is designed to look great in the home and not to overpower a room. Fine lines of longitude and latitude are displayed, with a bold line for the Greenwich Meridian. This non-illuminated version of the Bradley globe is a hand finished product. This means that no two globe spheres are exactly identical due to the method of manufacture and the craftsman's personal interpretation of land relief. The sphere is fabricated from fibreboard, with a surface layer made from printed and die-cut card. To make the globe's printed surface layer from an originally flat sheet, the print has to be die cut, so that it can form the convex shape needed. The semi circular half meridian is made of metal, and allows the globe to spin freely. The base is a square dark stained finished wood block, with a short matching wood "riser" to which the meridian is fixed.
