A delightful celestial globe on a brass inclined plain mount attached to original square bakelite base and secured at the top by a brass acorn finial. By George Philip and Son; circa 1935. Showing the constellations and many named stars.

Dimensions: 15 cm/6 inches (globe diameter) x 22.25 cm/8¾ inches (height)

When looking at the stars from Earth the viewpoint is effectively inside a celestial sphere. The surface of a celestial globe shows the star field as a projection viewed from the outside and is therefore reversed, with the constellations appearing as their mirror images.
