Large yellow hard plastic sun with attached wood black and white spheres representing the planets. The boom is inset with minute compass, 3" Rand McNally globe with attached moon activated by nickle-plated clockwork gears and chain. Heavy cast Iron Base with seasons and equinox. Manufacturing info on revolving arm states "Trippenssee Planetarium Co. Saginaw, Mich. The bottom of base is embossed with the manufacturing date "1960". Everything Functions as it should.

All gears work perfectly as well as all chains. No painting or touch up has been done. Minute compass appears incomplete.
