The Celeste Mantel Clock is a beautiful talking piece for all homes, and would make a stunning centrepiece for a desk. A scientific work of art, the clock is a reproduction of the 'Heaven Machine' developed and built by the famous clock maker Philipp Matthaus Hahn in the 18th century. With an ebony finish, the piece indicates the months over the year via an electric mechanism showing the time, month, date, moon phase and all signs of the zodiac. A mechanism on the top of the clock illustrates the earth revolving around the sun and rotates daily to show the position of its axis, enabling any budding astrologer to follow the earth on its journey.
Each domed cover is made from mouth blown mineral glass, and thus can have small bubbles and imperfections, making each and every Celeste a unique piece.
