1635256183Code 7105 Antique sundialRare tiltable and lockable equinoctial sundial of engraved brass and glass, complete with case lined with blue velvet. United Kingdom first half of the 19th century. Excellent condition, fully functional. Box size cm 14.5x13.5 h 5.

It is an ancient time measuring instrument whose orientation is given by the magnetic compass located at the base and allows you to orient the sundial, while two levels and three leveling screws provide the right position to the plate where the magnetic needle is placed. The names of some Italian cities, Genoa, Turin, Milan, Florence, Rome and Naples and their latitudes are engraved on the compass. On one side there is a hinge with which it is possible to raise the equinoctial ring, tilting it to the degrees of latitude read on the lateral scale and corresponding to the place where the solar time is read parallel to the equator. The gnomon is placed in the center of the diametrical rod of the ring; placing the sundial in the North / South position, the gnomon casts its shadow in the inner circle of the ring where the daytime hours are engraved.
