"The Artificial Sphere", Jefferys, Thomas
Subject: Cartographic Miscellany
Period: 1770 (circa)
Color: Hand Color
4.3 x 7.2 inches
10.9 x 18.3 cm
A very decorative example of an elaborate Armillary sphere enclosed in a decorative rococo-style frame. This is either by Jefferys or Guthrie; the origin is unclear as one is an exact mirror image of the other.
Very nice example with dark engraved lines and fine coloring.
