Order Now For Xmas Solar System Model Motorized Looks Vintage Planetarium Space
This is considered the companion piece to the Sherlock model. Much like the solar systems we painstakingly produce, this is a model we've transformed by a little ingenuity, metallic paint, art images from old masters (this one features a modified early 1800s Michaelangelo Barberi painting of the city of Rome) printed on canvas, antique gels, many coats of varnish and many many hours of work. The gears move the earth and moon around the sun. These are plastic models (some metal) which have been painted to look brass and wood. This started out as a students model to illustrate the earths rotation around the sun and the moons rotation around the earth. It is 16.5 inches across and approximately 12.5 tall which means it is a showstopper. We do not consider this a toy for anyone under the age of 12. We're unsure how long we will create this particular model because of the amount of time it consumes. The base has been painted to look like burled wood, is weighted and features ornate brass footings. We use a high grade commercial metallic paint to give the appearance of brass on the gears, the sun and the earth. The moon phase plate includes the zodiac.
A wire flourish has been added to the handle. This model has a more substantive weighty feel.
Please know that these are not designed as lamps or nightlights. But they are lovely and there will only be a handful of these in existence. AS ART WORK, THESE ARE NON RETURNABLE.
