Antique Trippensee Planetarium, Orrery, Solar System, Globe, Sun
Antique Trippensee Planetarium, Orrery, Solar System, Globe, Sun. I bought this years ago from an elderly school teacher in Oregon. I planned to restore but I didnt finish it yet! I did replace the drive chains. Great looking patina on the brass. The chrome plating is holding up pretty well. The original small plaque that was attached to the planetarium was Bakelite and was dated 1906 or 1908. The paper on the globe has some damage and areas where the paper is worn down.
The sun is separated at the seam, I believe it uses a ring inside to hold the halves together. The planetarium spins nicely and is functional! The item "Antique Trippensee Planetarium, Orrery, Solar System, Globe, Sun" is in sale since Monday, November 1, 2021.
