I found this site today, its in Melbourne Australia which is a pleasant surprise.  No prices are posted, I think its one of those places where if you ask "How much?" then you can't afford it.  Never the less Brian Grieg is a master of his art.  It's VERY steamy  ...  take a look.

Perhaps I should have put this in Chronautomata?

My Kingdom for an orrery! Had I but world enough, and time, I'd build one.
These look exquisite. Thank you for posting.

There's a chap in the UK who makes them called John Gleave - he built the one in Derby Museum.  Even the small ones are quite pricey.

I do say that I think my heart has skipped several beats at the beauty and splendor that I have viewed.  Things to do one day....go and see at least one of the amazing Orreries.....time to save up for Australia.....*swoon*
