Description

Our blown-glass ornament celebrates a bear figure that decorates a gilded-silver celestial globe with clockwork in The Met collection. This delightful ornament design was expressly handmade for The Met by glass artisans in Poland.

The magnificent silver globe on which the ornament is based once rotated to chart the constellations. It was made in 1579 in Vienna by Gerhard Emmoser (German, active 1556–84). The globe is engraved with 52 constellations; the Ursa Major (Great Bear) constellation contains the stars commonly known as the Big Dipper.
