National Geographic Carbon Classic Illuminated Globe

About The Globe

The Carbon Classic globe is one of the latest series of globes to feature National Geographic cartography. Over 2,000 place names are included. The text is clear and each country is given a different colour with a darker tone around the borders to accentuate the political mapping. In the oceans, undersea trenches and basins are named with arrows indicating major ocean currents. Shading is used to represent ocean depths. Designed in Italy, the cartography is contemporary and well styled.

Choose between illuminated or non-illuminated versions. The illuminated version is mains powered and comes complete with a 15W SES fitting bulb that is readily available and easily replaced, as well as a leaflet on how to replace the bulb (adult supervision required).

  • Available in Illuminated and Non-illuminated models
  • Also available in Antique Ocean (Carbon Executive)

This is going to be a present for my grandchildren. They are at an age where they want to know where places are in the world and I am certain they will find it very interesting - I already have!

This is a Christmas present for my daughter and her family, which they haven't yet been given! However, the globe is just what I wanted: clear delineations of countries - and a nice blue sea! - which will help the children to learn about the world we live in. Plus, the lighted globe will make a lovely feature in their home. Review by Wendy Bradley (Posted on 29/03/2018)

Bought the illuminated globe as a birthday present for my husband and we are both delighted with it. Looked at cheaper globes but am pleased I chose this one, quality and clarity are excellent. Much easier to appreciate the size of countries and oceans than by looking at a map. Review by BeBe East Yorkshire (Posted on 29/03/2018)

My husband had all ways wanted a globe, but there are so many on the market and such varied prices. I found this website and am so pleased I did. The globe was delivered within 24 hours and was even better than I had expected. Quality was second to none and takes pride of place in our lounge. Really really pleased with the quality product and excellent service. Review by Marianne (Posted on 29/03/2018)

I couldn't be more pleased with this present from a friend! It does exactly what I was hoping for and gives a far better idea of where places are relative to each other than you get from a flat map. I'm amazed how big the Pacific is!! Review by Ros - Perth (Posted on 29/03/2018)
