Antique Educational Aids - Laws of Elliptical Motion and Mars

Dating from 1852 they were originally produced by the Working Men's Educational Union,

Price is per diagram. We have two more examples, available to purchase individually (please make a note of your preferred option at the checkout).

They are all coloured for optimum viewing under gaslight and produced to be visible from a distance.

Each one roughly measures 120cm x 90cm.

They are in excellent vintage condition with a small amount of wear and tear as can be seen from photos.

There are some slightly later examples held in the V&A and Greenwich Museums and the latter have made prints and tote bags out of them.


  • H: 120cm (47.24in)
  • W: 90cm (35.43in)

We are impassioned collectors who source from all over the world in pursuit of decorative antiques and vintage curiosities.

We sell an eclectic mix of furniture, homeware, mid-century design, industrial lighting and original artwork - all culminating into a modern aesthetic.  Our items are always authentic, full of character and a little out of the ordinary.

All our items are available to buy from our bricks and mortar shop in the heart of Bristol Old City or directly through our website.  However, as we have a fast turnover of stock, some pieces don't always make it online, so please do visit our call us if you have something specific in mind you are searching for.

We regularly work with interior designers helping them to furnish restaurants, bars and homes.

We ship nationally and internationally and offer free local delivery for many items.
