An Armillary Sphere shows the Earth at its centre surrounded by rings which represent the great circles of the heavens. It was widely used during the 17th and 18th centuries in scientific debate over the relative merits of what was at the centre of the universe – the Sun or the Earth.

This simplified Armillary Sphere is a decorative ornament that would make a handsome addition for your desk. Made from machined brass with an antique finish, the base is made from polished hardwood.

12.7cm (5”) high
