The Berlin Globe by Columbus

The excellence of its design and cartographical display makes the stunning Columbus Berlin 20 Inch Illuminated Floor Globe an essential model for the customer with discerning taste. The massive 20 inch glass globe is held by a full brass meridian with latitudinal degree markings, and reaches 39 inches tall in its elegant stand. The curved three legged base is made out of smooth walnut. A horizontal cradle holds the gimbal mounted meridian and inlaid mother of pearl denotes north, south, east and west along with the months of the year.

The classically inspired base stands in contrast to the technologically contemporary DUO map. A signature flourish of Columbus' designs, the DUO contains two maps in one. When the light is not illuminated, a political map is presented. The blue ocean map is set against the pale pastel hues that populate the landmasses, divided by the country borders. With the flip of the switch, the Berlin's warm, colorful rays fill up the room, and a physical map of the landmasses and ocean floor overtakes the world globe.

The substantial 20 inch glass globe was hand blown by Columbus' skilled craftspeople, in a difficult process that takes years of experience to master. Afterwards, the artisans hand-cut and apply each gore of the map to the world globe piece by piece. The Berlin's exquisite manual construction is a testament to the over 100 years of globe making that Columbus has under its belt. One of the treasures from the esteemed line from the German manufacturer, the Columbus Berlin 20 Inch Illuminated Floor Globe is sturdy in construction but delicate in design. This modern classic recalls the ornate globes of yesteryear but with updated geography and technology. From the beautiful walnut cradle to the stellar cartography of the DUO map, the Berlin is an unforgettable floor globe!

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