1481114745Code 5378 Brass sundialBrass sundial placed in its original oak wooden box. French manufacture of the mid-XIX century. Cm 7x7x2 (h) - inches 2.75x2.75x0.78. Very good condition and fully functional. It is an ancient instrument of time measurement equipped with compass for orientation inserted in the base. The gnomon casts its shadow on a round dial, graduated in daylight hours in Arab numbers. To read correctly the hour, the clock must be oriented to the north, using the compass.

From the antiquity to the present day sundials were made in different types, shapes and sizes, such as portable models that performed the functions of our wristwatches and pocket watches. Different people and different cultures have also adopted various ways of measuring time in relation to their needs: we can still observe ancient sundials that do not follow the hours that we use today (astronomical hours) but, for example, Babylonian hours, Italian hours, canonical hours, etc.
