Source: FB profile of The International Coronelli Society for the Study of Globes


Until 30 November 2022, the Glass Museum in Kamenický Šenov (Czech Republic) will host the special exhibition “Ze šenovských chalup do světových paláců” [From Šenov cottages to the palaces of the world], which includes a rare example of the first industrially produced globe that can be illuminated from the inside.

The glass refinery Stelzig, Kittel & Co. located in Kamenický Šenov (former German name: Steinschönau) produced and distributed coloured lampshades for kerosene lamps designed as terrestrial and celestial globes in the second half of the 19th century.
