This is a great circa 1868 Swedish tellurion planetarium by J. Sometimes called an orrery, this piece was made in Stockholm, Sweden. Unit consists of a globe and cast iron stand driven by crank handle showing the earth with its moon, the sun symbolized by a candle with reflector, and the graphic zodiac plate. I have had planetariums for sale before but always manufactured by Laings; never seen this model before and much earlier I believe. I believe original cast iron paint. Please note the interesting globe countries and the Zodiac graphics. Rare item of a scientific educational realm. A word about condition. I will try to note anything of significance in the description. We do offer an easy layaway program. Usually 20% down, with the remaining term somewhat negotiable.
