The Gea floor globe features a current world globe that is 16 inches in diameter and has an updated, modern world map that is a lovely shade of mustard and burgundy. The floor stand that the earth globe is mounted on is made of solid hardwood and has been stained a lovely chestnut color with water-based paint for both beauty and protection of the floor-stand world globe.
The decorative geographical world globe is encompassed by a beautiful pressed aluminum semi-meridian that adds a true touch of class to this piece of floor globe furniture. Both the meridian and the pressed aluminum base of this Italian globe are painted a lovely antique brass color using the same materials and techniques that are used for high-grade automobile bodywork.
Gea world globes and bar globes by Zoffoli are made with high quality materials. The actual globe map is printed on pure card stock cellulose that is protected by transparent film, then cut with high precision tools and assembled by hand. The globe sphere rotates for easy reference viewing.
Although these modern globes feature current, updated world maps, the globe decor style is timeless. The decorative globes and/or globe bar cabinets from the Gea Collection are right at home among modern decor interiors and classic furniture alike, combining old world charm with modern cartography. The Gea contemporary design globes and globe bars show current countries, major cities, capitols, and even ocean currents. So not only is a Gea earth globe by Zoffoli a beautiful piece of Italian decor and furniture, the decorative world globe is also an educational tool and reference source.
