Greenwich Brass Sundial Compass
A beautiful nautical compass and sundial. Made from solid brass, it is a portable instrument with a compass for alignment and a sundial on the lid.
Inscribed "Greenwich sundial", this makes a great gift from the home of time. Brass - an alloy of copper and zinc - is easy to work with, can be polished to a gleaming shine, and has a high degree of corrosion resistance, making it the traditional choice of metal for use in harsh marine environments.
- Diameter: 7.6cm / 3" Height: 2.5cm / 1"
- The gnomon is set for latitudes around 50 degrees North, so will be most accurate in the south of England, northern Europe, and Canada.
- Comes with a velvet carry pouch for protection.
This item is part of our The Van de Veldes: Greenwich, Art and the Sea exhibition collection. Visit the Queen’s House from 2 March 2023.
