Code BA13042856: ANTIQUE GERMAN EQUINOCTIAL SUNDIAL COMPASS c.1900

This is an extremely rare German equinoctial sundial compass made around 1900. The large wood case is in excellent condition without any damage. The inner dial is made of a white silvered metal with German cardinal points. A raised ring is graduated in degrees and numbered every 20 degrees (0 to 360 at North). The dial is covered with a glass crystal in excellent condition without chips or scratches. The compass can be used with a latitude bar and folding gnomon bar to read the solar time. The compass is precise and points North without any problem. The needle is blocked (transit lock) when the lid is closed. The transit lock prevents wear to the pivot when the compass is not in use. The needle is blue and silver. This is a large instrument measuring 92mm x 92mm. This is a nice a rare example that would make a nice add to any serious collection.
