ANTIQUE circa 1670 - 1730 ENGLISH CHAPTER RING & FOLDING GNOMON FOR POCKET SUNDIAL

This sle is only for the chapter ring and gnomon, and does not include the compass it would have been mounted on.

The ring and gnomon assembly is well made and nicely engraved.  The gnomon can fold to either side, and has a spring detent to hold it firmly upright or in either of its folded positions.

The gnomon is set at 50° (approximately London).

Diameter: the chapter ring is not a perfect circle (normal in the late 1600s) and the diameter varies between 63.25mm and 64.30mm - average 63.77mm.

This could be fixed to the glass of any suitably sized compass, or set into wood or marble with a small aligning compass to create a working antique sundial, or could be the part you need to complete a compass that is missing this item.
