16-Inch Desktop Globes.... Why so hard to find?

Rockford Globe
Finding a 16-inch desktop globe is a hard find, especially when you are looking for a non-education (school) globe. Typically most manufacturers stay away from globes this size due to the level of interest. Lets face it, a 16-inch globe is pretty big and most desks are not very accommodating when you have your 27-inch iMac taking up most of the space.

We have teamed up with Replogle manufacturing to produce a simple style that delivers. The Rockford globe (in limited quantity) uses the 16-inch Antique globe ball found on many Replogle Floor Standing globes, that includes raised relief features. The gyro (full swing meridian) mounting allows thew globe to sit in place and easily be maneuvered into any view point.

What to be mindful of when selecting this globe is (a) space. If your placing the globe on a large table in your home or conference room, you should be fine. However, if you are trying to fit in on the end table next to your sofa between the remote and the table lamp, you may want to consider a 12-inch or smaller size.

You can find out more about the Rockford globe by visiting the Replogle Globe Store.
