Obverse of Horary quadrant
This is a folding horary quandrant made from northern Italian boxwood. It has scales for degrees, hours and signs of the zodiac. The folding format is very unusual. A plain box opens to reveal a square horary quadrant. This example shows Italian hours as well as common hours. A recess is provided for the storage of the plumb bob and enables the box to close.
