Modeled after an early astronomical instrument thought to have been designed in ancient Greece, this working, brass-plated astrolabe replica makes a striking statement displayed on a desk or library shelf. The principles of the astrolabe—used to study the stars at a particular time and place—were used for hundreds of years before newer technologies took their place. Infused with scientific history, this decorative device will delight any card-carrying astronomy geek or instrument aficionado.
