One of my table top creations. The name for this type of item is an ORRERY! Steampunk inspired but based in real historical science (the concept, not the actual system shown!). In real life it would be much larger and mechanical with moving gears and whatnot... a way to see the planets and other heavely bodies move around each other and their star no matter it it were our solar system or another.

In this case we must settle for a non moving minature replica of this far flung alien star system complete with large miniature style slender base in dark copper, really a bronze finish, pink gold sun surrounded a whopping total of NINE planetary bodies including main planets and moons of various sizes and colors like blue, green, earthen bronze, copper, silver, golds, etc.!

Each one is perched on a gracefully curved and bouncy wire in their orbits. Done in various metallic finishes. And at the bottom of the base you'll find a faux mother of pearl inset in metal "start" button... alas, no longer working! This item is almost 6" tall by 6" across! (reminder, 2.5 cm per inch)...

Made almost 100% from wood (sometimes with tiny amounts of other things) I paint and / or finish these with dark undertones and shading to highlight the details and then use layers of metallic and / or other coloring and finishes, making sure a lot of details shine through, often even the wood grain despite high tech themes. They maintain an often retro, sometimes even rustic look and feel to them, like an "olde worlde" toy or something (some more so than others).

While you're here consider browsing my many other pieces usually made mostly from wood including ray guns, robots, rockets, flying saucers, other vehicles, animals, diorama scenes, etc... made in various forms from tiny miniatures to full size replicas, jewelry like pendants, Christmas ornaments, magnets and others! I do retro, some straight hard science, steampunk, humorous and anything else that comes to mind...

These collectable pieces are generally meant for display or adult use and NOT for young children to play with. Do to their hand made and finished nature as well as the natural wood and materials used some variations are of course normal.

Please email rather than convos if possible for easy and flexible communication. I usually post my adddress in my store, so thanks. I gladly accept checks (USA) or money orders and cashier's checks! I take credit cards (usually directly as a merchant) -- if any other online options they will be listed in the emails I and Etsy will send buyers. All of the information you should need should be available right on the Etsy receipt as well as in these emails. I DO ship all over the world!!! Do to the variety of my merchandise and post office changes I may not be able to list shipping a head of time but am fair and feel free to contact me... I LOVE foreign orders!

Interested in a variation of what you see or an outright custom made piece at a fair price? Contact me for details.

Thanks for looking!
Pete
