Forged vertical disc dial, reverse
Forged vertical disc dial with no measurable latitude. It is made of brass, has a fixed hanging loop and the suspension ring is missing. On the obverse side, a time curve is drawn from the top of the dial in an arc to the right. There is floral decoration and a decorated rim where there are no scales. A declination scale at the top left of the dial is divided from solstice to solstice and marked by month. On the opposite edge is a scale for the time of sunrise. Both these scales have a slot set inside them. The brass pin gnomon moves in the slot of the declination scale.
