Sundial Compass

The earliest type of timekeeping device was a sundial, which indicates the time of day by the position of the shadow of some object exposed to the sun's rays. As the day progresses, the sun moves across the sky, causing the shadow of the object to move and indicating the passage of time. What a cool gift; the Sundial Compass not only has a sundial but also a compass; both of which are handmade. Brass, glass - Gnomon of sundial folds down - 3.75" D (not including corner screws) x 1.25" H (with gnomon folded flat), Gnomon: 1.75"H
