- Physical description: Wooden polyhedral sundial, (155 by 110 by 850mm), paper pasted to furniture, hand-coloured and varnished, brass gnomon
- Inventory reference: 2174
The sundial is made up of an articulated arm, surmounted by a cube with sundials and gnomons to all five sides. The arm allows the user to incline the cube in a north-south direction; a plumb line on the eastern side that moves along a graduated scale can be used to adapt the instrument to the latitude of the user. To the base is set a compass in order to gain the correct bearing.
