OK, so it's a mapping globe covered in small curved bits of cork stuck on with a strong glue.

Stick pins in holiday destinations or locataions of friends. Pin phone messages from the mother-in-law over colder parts of the world.

       does it come with the traditional stand or just roll about?

       I thought a small dished base, so that you can pick it up.
