Brass engraved sundial with the original gnomon. The angle of the gnomon is approximately 51.5 degrees, the latitude of London.
The hour chapters are divided into 1/2s, 1/4s as on an early single handed 30 hour dial but it is also divided into 1/8s or 7.5 minutes. A dial such as this is not easy to date accurately but the style of engraving and the wide stumpy proportions of the numeral suggest very early 18th century possibly earlier.
