The Fife Arms Hand-Crafted Celestial Globe


This limited-edition miniature black porcelain globe depicts the constellations visible with the naked eye in the Cairngorms Dark Sky, the celestial canopy above The Fife Arms. It is as if the viewer is outside a celestial globe looking back at the earth at its centre.

Each globe is marked by needlepoint and then hand painted before being fired in excess of 1200°C to allow the pigments to fuse with the globe. An heirloom piece, it sits in an emerald green nappa and oak pocket case on an oak stand.
