Trippensee Planetarium circa early 20th century. All original Brass & Maple. Brass sun and base have dents and some tarnish. Earth globe is original and in good shape but for a bit of torn paper as shown.Black and white Moon and planet Venus show paint aging. The long main chain is tight, the planet & moon orbit chains are just a little slack. I have lubricated the main and secondary gear bearings after disassembling and cleaning the old oil off with alcohol and it operates fine, the Earths skips a little during each rotation and would need to be adjusted.
The gear teeth do not seem to be worn at all. No deterioration of the metal parts. The maple arm and turned central standard are in good condition with only minor signs of wear. Displays nicely for a 100 year old artifact. This will be carefully packaged for safe arrival.
Ships same or next day. Questions Encouraged Before the Sale. Professional Packaging With Attention To Fragile Items.All Items Fully Tested where applicable. Serving Customers On line Since April 1999.
