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 Iron Blue illuminated globe has a rare combination of highly detailed globe and luxuriously minimalist style. Mounted atop a chromed steel stem and solid chromed steel base with discreet, foot-operated switch, this globe is sure to be the centre of attention in any contemporary room or office setting.

The Iron Blue illuminated 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.
