Heymann Tellurian late 19th century

An unusually small tellurian with Heymann globe and featuring a metal body and clockwork mechanism turning a 2 3/4 diameter globe and wooden moon.  The globe is signed, Erd Globus, Berlin, Ldw. Jul. Heymann.   The tellurian stands 12 tall and is only 13 long overall.  The globe is in fine condition, noting some characteristic aging.    A concave brass disk represents the sun and reflects the candle light onto the earth and moon.  The printed zodiac disc around the candle is in fine condition.  The tellurian is fully functional, in exceptionally fine original condition.  It is rare to find a traditional tellurium in such a small size.  It is made all the more rare with the signed Heymann globe.
