Why is this important?
Cartography that is printed on globes exported from China may show manipulated land borders and island territories that are not recognised by the United Nations and western countries.

We only supply globes with cartography that is printed in Europe or the United States which accurately reflect our world.

Franklin Desk Globe

About The Globe

This 30 cm (12") antique ocean, desktop world globe is one of our best-selling globes and is ideal for the home or office.

The globe itself is part of the World Classic series from Replogle World Globes. The map shows up-to-date cartography by Kevin M Dzurny and has clear political boundaries with over 4,000 place names. It also has the popular raised relief feature, revealing the world's main mountain ranges in a tactile way. In the oceans, the cartographer has depicted popular shipping routes with their distances and included drawings of sea-going vessels through the ages, adding value and interest to this traditionally-styled globe. The base and graduated meridian are made of metal with a bronze painted finish that will complement any setting.

The Franklin globe is an excellent choice for students and travel enthusiasts alike.

This Franklin globe is made using traditional techniques with recycled and recyclable materials. It comes complete with a booklet on how to use, enjoy and care for your globe. This globe is made with pride in Corby, Northamptonshire, in the heart of the UK.
