Each sphere is hand made from casting plaster. Each globe is made in the time honoured traditional method. 12 paper gore sections are carefully applied to the sphere with starch paste. Once dry the surface is burnished and finished with multiple very thin layers of varnish.

Giovanni Maria Cassini, 1792, was considered one of the best engravers in Rome. For the Celestial glove Cassini used the best available astronomical data. 

Each globe is unique and comes with a hand cast Jesmonite base.

Made by hand in London.

Dimensions: Globe 15cm, base 6.5cm
