Bronze Sphere Stand, Tapered, CJ-104

Weight: 250 grams or 8.8 ounces
Measures: 58mm outer edge top, 64mm outer edge base, 55mm rubber o-ring with a 45mm inner cushion (included), approx 23mm high
Origin: North Carolina, USA

This particular stand is best for spheres between 55mm and 120mm (approximately 2 1/4” through 4 1/2”). It could hold slightly smaller spheres, but would not recommend larger.

Our metal bases create a perfect balance in both weight and beauty to perfectly compliment your nicest spheres, eggs, and even bowls. The black rubber o-ring perfectly fits within the rim of the stand, protecting your stone and providing a cushion for the softest of mineral surfaces. With its elegant smooth lines and warm texture, this bronze stand will only enhance your stone and décor both.

Each piece is made on a manually-operated lathe in the US by our master metal crafter, and therefore no two will be exactly alike (though differences will be minimal). Our stands are exclusively made for Origin Stones by Terrapondus Machine Works out of Asheville, North Carolina.

*** Green Opal sphere is not included. For demonstration purposes only. Green Opal sphere is approximately 60mm in diameter (or about 2.34″).***

_____________________________________________


The best way to care for your new Origin Stones sphere stand is to keep it dry and clean. If it stays dry, your stand should last for years and years without any discoloring or tarnishing. It is not uncommon for a stand’s finish to dull slightly with time, and we recommend Sunshine™ polishing clothes for when you want to spruce up the polish on your stand. A Sunshine™ polishing cloth is included in every order of an Origin Stones metal sphere stand.

Bronze, aluminum and copper are fairly soft as far as metals go, and care should be taken to prevent scratching. When drying or wiping your stands, please use soft, non-scratching cloth, like chamois. Even paper towels could cause tiny scratches in the surface of your metal.

If your stand should get dirty, it is recommended to wash it with a mild dish soap and water, using a super soft chamois-type cloth. Please be sure to dry your stand immediately. Air drying may leave discoloration or water spots. Steel is the only material that may benefit from a layer of oil after washing. If you purchase a steel stand from us, consider wiping it down with a light household oil (WD-40 is perfect) after drying.

Do not put your metal sphere stand in the dishwasher.

Always use your stands with the included rubber o-ring in place. This is for the protection of both your stand and your sphere. A replacement o-ring is included in your purchase, should you need it.
