Crescent dial, underside of base
Crescent dial for latitudes 10-90 North. Standard dial (see related terms) except for the following details: the dial-plate is gilt-brass while the leg and levelling screws are silver. The hour-plate is gilt-brass, has silver hour scales, a date scale and a gnomon. The silver latitude arc is divided -90 and the plumb-bob support, also silver, carries a gilt-brass bob. In all respects, this instrument closely resembles AST0352. On its obverse side, the dial is engraved 'Masig a London 52'. Masig was the London agent of a number of dial makers. The maker of this dial was probably either Johann Martin or Johann Willebrand.
probably Johann Martin or Johann Matthias Willebrand
