Franklin Mint Brass Celestial Orrery Picture and Description:

 187303304975302970 Franklin Mint Brass Celestial Orrery

This is a Celestial Orrery made of solid brass with a wood base made exclusively by the Franklin Mint. This orrery is in mint condition & comes with a brochure from the Franklin Mint. I purchased the orrery in 1995. They have not been made for many years. Noted London clockmaker George Graham invented the orrery sometime between 1705 and 1709. This orrery represents the sun and the planets on a single plane. Once the planets are positioned to suit, you can rotate the Earth assembly by using a small amount of force to the gear plate to which the Earth is attached.
