Brass Armillary Sphere Sundial $39
This is a beautiful solid brass antique reproduction of an Armillary Sphere Sundial.
We are pleased to offer the Armillary Sphere, which is one of the most accurate sundials ever made.
The signs of the zodiac decorate the outside of the sphere, which is supported by an adjustable
thumbscrew clamp that can be set to your local latitude.
To determine the local time the Armillary Sphere's arrow points polar north and the gnomon casts a shadow onto the equatorial band that is etched with Roman numerals.
This design permits a linear 15 degree per hour scale.
The Armillary Sphere features a heavy solid brass base, and the sundial measures 8 inches (20.3 cm) tall,
the ring is 4 3/4 inches (12.1 cm) in diameter, and the sundial weighs 1 1/2 pounds (680 grams).
The Armillary Sphere Sundial is offered at only $39.
We also sell a decorative Armillary Sphere
Sundial on a hardwood base and a Large Solid Brass Armillary Sphere Garden Sundial.
