Horizontal dial, mounted on gold finger ring

Horizontal dial for latitude 48 North. This dial is in the form of a gold signet ring. It has a gold acanthus design with a black enamel fill. There are gold scallops around the signet, which has a repeating wheatsheaf design along its edge. The seal has a design with 'MIMR' above and two letters to the sides (possibly 'HR'). The lid covering the dial has a milled edge. Inside, it is engraved with the initials 'H C', stars and a flower. On the dial, the hour-lines radiate from a point below the compass. The gnomon is missing but was probably just a string gnomon. The compass is surmounted by a cylindrical pivot set with a diamond (?) and a glass plate covers all.
