Home >> POCKET GLOBES, TELLURIONS, AND ORRERY

 
Pocket globes came into fashion in Georgian England and remained popular until the mid-nineteenth century. They were the executive toys of their era, being three inches, or thereabouts, in diameter.  Their cases were often lined with star charts or other information. Joseph Moxon, credited with bring pocket globes to England in 1673, is thought to have gotten the idea from the Blaeus, in Holland. 

Orreries and Tellurions are models of the solar system, usually with a clockwork mechanism to demonstrate their movements relative to each other.
 
These astronomical instruments are each one of a kind, and no design will be repeated.
