I was somewhat disappointed in how this looked and almost returned it. The black was not as black it appears in the pictures and the colors were not as vibrant as I expected. It was a gift for my 21 year old son and he loved it however.
gift for husband for our 60th anniversary. he loves it. Has it on his desk
We purchased this for our son, who uses maps every day in his job. He had it assembled in less than 5 minutes. He loves it and we were surprised and pleased at the beauty of the stand and globe. Would highly recommend for anyone who likes globes and wants a standing globe.
