Horizontal dial by unknown zoom

Horizontal dial

Portable horizontal dial for latitude 48 north. Silver octagonal dial-plate with a gilt-brass compass, gnomon and gnomon brace. On the obverse side is an hour scale with a small central circular acanthus motif. The gnomon is hinged, pierced and decorated with foliage designs, and folds flat when not in use. The reverse side is plain apart from a decorated gnomon brace. The compass is silvered on the inside. The cardinal points are marked by crossed lines and named in Latin. The needle is blued, with an open circle for South, and is surmounted by a brass pyramidal pivot. It is offset 3 West of north to allow for magnetic variation. The dial-plate is supported by the compass bowl and one turned silver leg.
