The Sydney Gray Ocean Designer Globe is a truly beautiful globe. Standing 12″ tall this 9″ diameter globe is held by a solid white numbered die-cast semi-meridian. The hand painted white-colored base is made of a solid hardwood. The base and semi-meridian coloring matches perfectly with the gray ocean and white landmasses of the raised relief textured globe ball. Light gray border outlines accentuate and differentiate the country borders of the world. The perfect globe for the person that appreciates fine craftsmanship.
