Rare Art Deco double-hemisphere celestial chart filled with decorative illustrations of the constellations as classical mythological figures. 

The two hemispheres show the skies as of January 1st and July 1st respectively. The cartouche instructs the user of the chart to "face south, and raise map over head, to place constellations." A key displays symbols representing sizes of the stars depicted. Inset illustrations of Phoebus Apollo, the Sun God, and Diana, the Moon Goddess, are set between the two hemispheres. Personifications of the wind blow from each spandrel at the four corners.
