A decorative celestial chart, describing the orbit of the planets in the Solar system. The central diagram represents the solar system, with the Sun at the centre; further diagrams surrounding it describe the movements of each planet throughout the year. The chart is decorated with an illustration of a queenly figure atop a globe, representing Earth, attended by cherubs who represent the planets - Mars in war-gear, Mercury carrying his caduceus, Jupiter riding an eagle, Saturn carrying an hourglass and scythe as master of old age, and Venus carrying a torch.
