Augsburg dial, underside
Augsburg dial for latitudes 6-90 North. Standard dial (see related terms) except for the following details: the dial-plate is lacquered. The compass has cardinal points named in Latin and a central eight-point rose. The glass plate is cracked. The remainder of the dial-plate carries a wind-ring and is engraved with decorative patterns of waves over bricks. The wind-ring has sixteen points marked in German and by-points indicated by lines. The latitude arc is divided - and the hour ring is decorated with a repeating pattern. Hinged to the South side of the dial-plate, the Plumb-bob support is elaborately shaped, engraved with foliate decoration and pierced to accommodate the plumb bob. There is a flower at the centre of the compass back and the brace for the plumb-bob support on the reverse side is shaped and decorated.
