Dresden Illuminated Dual Mapping Globe


About This Globe

This German-designed, illuminated globe with its simple, yet elegant solid wooden base and 33 cm (13") diameter globe ball, is the perfect addition to the home or office.

Discover two versions of the world with the flick of a switch! The Dresden globe displays the popular dual mapping feature - with a twist! - When unlit a subtle, political map is displayed with the country boundaries shown in pastel colours. The cartographer has also included the world's main rail, air and seaways for added interest.

When illuminated, a physical map appears in stunning earth tones, revealing the world's mountain regions, forests, desert, rivers and ice-covered regions. Ocean depths also appear in different shades of blue. This clever use of shadowing techniques by the cartographer has given the globe a raised-relief effect that appears almost 3-dimensional, adding further interest to this multi-functional piece.

The Dresden globe comes fully-assembled. NOTE: mains operated. Supplied in English language.

very nice globe cartography is stunning. It's exactly were wanted it to. This is not a niggle! It came nicely wrapped except on the receipt it clearly said Dresden. As per order Dresden and also a nice little free gift, but the instructions were for a Columbus not the Dresden, but I soon worked it out, actually on your advert's the Columbus is £280 and had some more technical globe holder, i.e. gauges, measuring different positions, i.e. guess it got mixed up in your store room. All I've got to do now is get someone to put the LED bulb in as I am disabled and can't do it myself Review by AJ James (Posted on 03/04/2018)

I gave my Daughter this globe for Christmas, as we travel a lot we can look on the globe to see locations. It is has a great glow in the dark and splendid details, we use it everyday and visitors always comment on it, and ask where I purchased it. Our next globe is Is for the lounge.

Attractive and informative Globe...and makes an excellent corner piece to the room. Plus the illumination is impressive... However one major drawback is that we only had the globe and lit for a week when the lamp inside burned out, necessitating us finding a replacement soon after purchase !!!

I recently stomped on my original seventies globe when drunk. I bought this one as none of the others on the market give that really authentic Earth-like feel and GLOW! I'm 400% happy. Of course I wish it was cheaper - but then I wish that beer flowed from the tap and that I wasn't such a loser. Review by Chris - Plymouth (Posted on 03/04/2018)

I bought this product as a gift for my fiance. It arrived in good time and I was pleased with it. Unfortunately once the globe had been switched on, the bulb blew within a couple of minutes. We luckily had a spare. Once we'd changed the bulb, the fuse blew immediately. Not ideal when its a gift. Review by anonymous (Posted on 03/04/2018)
