The Bamberg Globe by Columbus

The lavishly designed Columbus Bamberg 16 Inch Illuminated Floor Globe thrills with its breathtaking and opulent style! The glass globe is 16 inches in diameter and reaches 47 inches tall atop its matte-brass pedestal stand. The golden colored base features a cylindrical semi-meridian, which cradles the blue ocean globe.

The Bamberg is a prime example of Columbus' DUO map technology. Invented by the German manufacturer, the DUO features two maps in one. With the light off, the blue ocean globe's political map is showcased. The multicolored continents showcase country divisions that complement the ocean hue. Packed to the brim with cartographical details like place names and water current directions, the political map turns physical when the globe is illuminated. Then, when lit, three dimensional shading illustrating the world's high mountain ranges and deep underwater valleys come alive on the floor globe.

Savor this superb hand blown, glass globe! At the large 16 inch size, it is an incredibly precarious and difficult process to make the glass sphere. Afterwards, the DUO map is manually cut by skilled artisans and glued one gore at a time to the model's surface. This handcrafted beauty is a testament to German manufacturer's traditional globe making philosophy. The Columbus Bamberg 16 Inch Illuminated Floor Globe frames the classic blue ocean map with its decadently colored brass stand. The startling world globe's design is an assured head turner and extraordinary conversation starter.

Although some of our images show the place names in a foreign language all globes are in English.
