Based on an 18th-century travel sundial, this brass rendition, like the original, needs a compass to find north. Raising the triangular gnomon upright while pointing the compass needle north will show the time. With its hand-aged, hand-polished finish and hand-colored compass cards, this compact piece will take place of pride on a mantel or desktop.
