The diameter of the globe is 33 cm.
This is a very rare 'demonstration' celestial globe from the 1960s that is very rare and sought-after by collectors of scientific instruments, teaching materials and globes
The sphere is made of cardboard and it is covered with paper strips. It is placed with a 360º protractor of metal in a matching metal container
This globe is in a good condition with just a few signs of age.
The austere manner in which the constellations are indicated illustrates the purpose of this instrument as a means of navigation for ships.
This is in contrast to most celestial globes from earlier times that were often lavishly decorated and mainly served as 'status' objects.
Please also see the photos that give an accurate impression of this object’s condition.
The globe will be shipped by registered post but can also be picked up at the seller 'The Globemuseum' in Moordrecht, the Netherlands
