Inclining Pocket Sundial


Brass, approximately 2 1/2" in diameter, this sundial has an open face with a hinged gnomon to make it portable. The sundial plate displays roman numerals and is cut away to a 1/4" outer edge, allowing the compass rose to be viewed through a glass cover. The compass rose is divided into the basic 32 point star with a separate exterior dial showing 360°. North is marked by a fleur-de-lys . A blued metallic double needle points to both north and south with gold letters denoting both directions.
