Diptych dial, leaf Ia
Diptych dial for latitude 49 north. This miniature rectangular shaped dial consists of two leaves that fold flat when not in use. Leaf I is made completely of ivory and leaf II has a wooden core. Leaf Ia features a standard lunar volvelle except the edge is not scalloped. There is a single-lined border and red decorations in the corners. Leaf Ib features the vertical dial. The hour-lines, in blue, radiate from a double semicircle, inside which are two red snowflake motifs. There is single-lined border. Leaf IIa is as standard except the hour-lines are in blue and the numbers are in black. The string gnomon is attached between the inner surfaces of the two leaves.
