Astrolabes date back to ancient times and are highly versatile tools with gorgeous detailing. This pin is all gold-plated metal and has three pieces total. The top plate, called a "rule" on a real astrolabe, fully rotates. This is pin is plated in highly polished gold metal and measures 3" round.
This Astrolabe pin is a large 3″ piece set on a gold-plated metal featuring my artistic interpretation of an astrolabe. I styled this pin based on three historical Astrolabes. It is a decorative piece that would look great in a collection for space enthusiasts. This pin features four posts on the back for added stability because of the size, weight and balance of the piece. Due to the large size and delicate features of this item, each unit will be wrapped in a small sheet of bubble wrap and shipped in a sturdy padded mailer. International shipping may be more expensive than other items due to the weight of this piece.
