The Armillary
in Gold Plate and Pewter

The Armillary material is Pewter, and some surfaces are a pewter finish while others are in a gold plate. The base is two tiered in Marble. The Earth is represented by a Marble ball in the center. The Meridian Ring adjusts to different Latitudes, and the cage turns to show the path of the Sun. The Ecliptic Ring has the position of the Sun for any time of the year.
