About This Globe

When only the finest will do! Globes don’t come much more special than the Black Forest Globe.

This 40cm (16") diameter illuminated globe is larger than the standard size for desktop globes. Each globe ball is hand blown by German craftsmen from the finest glass and the gores (individual sections of the map) are hand laid. The cartographic artistry of the map, with its unique use of shading on land masses and in the oceans to create a 3 dimensional relief effect, is second to none. The globe shows physical features of the earth when unlit and political boundaries appear when the globe is illuminated. The stand on the Black Forest globe is made from stainless steel and is deliberately kept simple in design so as not to detract from the globe itself. German quality at its best!
