Universal equinoctial ring dial
Forged universal equinoctial ring dial for all latitudes. This dial consists of two concentric rings and a bridge, which folds flat when not in use, with a suspension ring and a bracket that is soldered to the ring, which slides in the grooved rim of the meridian ring. This is almost certainly a 20th century forgery, though purporting to be an 18th century French dial. The quality of engraving is poor and the dates for the equinoxes are marked incorrectly on one side of the bridge.
