Circular inclining dial for latitudes 0-60 North
The dial has a silvered hour-circle hinged to the North side of the base-plate and numbered IIII-XII, I-VIII. The gnomon is supported by circular arcs, decorated with a wheatsheaf design and folds flat when not in use. The latitude arc is silvered, hinged to the East side of the base-plate, and divided from tip 0-60. The compass is silvered and set into the base-plate. It features an eight-point rose with the cardinal and quadrantal points marked by English initials and is highly decorated with a floral design. Two brass spirit levels are set into it and a radial arm clamps the needle against the glass. On the hour-circle, it is signed 'Cox . London'.
