?English DECORATIVE NOCTURNAL

Cast brass, unsigned and undated; diameter 102 mm; radial length of pointer 200 mm.

Replicas and re-creation of sundials and related instruments were popular at the end of the 19th century, as, indeed, they still are at the end of the 20th century. This is a rather poorly made re-creation, but it will function as a nocturnal.
