Overview

Our Eaton III Tripod globe features the most up-to-date National Geographic cartography in colors reminiscent of parchment globes from centuries past. More than 4,000 place-names give an accurate view of contemporary political boundaries. Raised relief helps distinguish topographic features around the world. The globe is formed from precision-cut paper maps that are transformed, using heat and pressure, into rounded hemispheres. The hemispheres are joined by hand, and die-cast meridian and brass knobs are added for a classic look. Some assembly required. Made in the U.S. by Replogle, a globe manufacturer for more than 80 years.

Care Info

National Geographic is proud to introduce our new line of globes for home, office, and classroom. Our floor-standing, tripod, and illuminated globes are all manufactured in the U.S. by Replogle, which has been making globes for more than 80 years. Each globe has more than 4,000 place names, printed on durable press-craft, plastic-impregnated paper.


Started in the founder's basement at the height of the Depression, Replogle has grown to become the world's largest manufacturer of fine globes. National Geographic's award-winning cartography group was founded in 1915 and has helped shape our vision of the world through the art and science of mapmaking.


Each handsome globe comes with a certificate of authenticity, and a replacement globe ball can be purchased separately whenever maps are updated.

My friend loved his gift but it has some faults

The size, scale and colors are great. The stand is made of good looking material and it works really nicely but it does feel kind of poor when you inspect it up close. The base of the glove (where it screws into the tripod) is not real wood. It's something industrial. The grooves in the legs are kind of heap looking. The globe itself looks really nice but the finishing is kind of poor. I understand that it is hand pasted but the longitude and latitude lines often do not match which looks like bad craftsmanship from up close.

Leg Joints Break

The joints where the legs connect to the base have broken on 2 of 3 legs simply moving while cleaning. The problem is the wood is not a typical hardwood and the joint relies on the strength of the wood. I've glued them back together and it just breaks in a new location. For an item at this price, it would have furniture quality hardwood.

We Love the globe.

My wife has wanted a globe for years and she is really pleased with the detail and raised mountain ranges. Her only regret is that Petoskey, Michigan is not indicated on it.
