Sphere and stand
Celestial facsimile globe. It forms a pair with terrestrial globe, van den Keere GLB0108. Astronomical details on the sphere include stars marked by various symbols, but there is no magnitude table. The Milky Way is drawn but not labelled. The Large Magellanic Cloud is labelled and the Small Cloud appears in a damaged area. In Aquarius, there is a reference to stars observed by Hevelius with a telescope.
