Magnetic dial, with lid by Samuel Porter zoom

Magnetic dial, with lid

Magnetic dial for latitude 51 north, set in a round, turned ivory case with a screw-fit lid. The dial is printed on painted and varnished compass card (red around the edge, the remainder yellow), on the underside of which is a bar magnet, set on a point, to orient the dial correctly. Around the edge of the card is a compass ring with sixteen points marked, seven by English initials and north by a fleur-de-lys. The hour ring is numbered clockwise IIII-XII, I-VIII, and at the South point is a portrayal of a winged Father Time, with a scythe and hourglass. A snake biting its tail surrounds the hour-circle and a simple brass gnomon sits on the compass card.
