Not made in China
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. China subsidise globe manufacturing to make them cheaper to buy and this is used to increase China's 'soft power'.

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


The Vasco da Gama Floor Globe with Black Ocean Globe Ball combines simplicity and elegance to make an impact without being overpowering. The completely up-to-date, stylish 16" globe ball boasts a sophisticated black colour ocean and has excellent clarity. The Italian cartographer has included a lot of detail in terms of countries and major city names as well as rivers, seas and mountains.

The central pillar and base are solid, stable and heavy, while having a relatively small footprint at floor level. The meridian is made from aluminium and completes the look of this high quality globe. Some assembly required.
