Product Description

This beautiful reproduction of an equinoctial sundial, known as the “Augsburg clock” is made with finely detailed brass and sits on a wooden base. The original was made by Iohann Georg Vogler (1720-1765) who belonged to the fourth generation of a legendary line of goldsmiths in Augsburg, Germany. It is a Sundial of German origin and of universal type like the Beringer, since it has a latitude scale adaptable to the place of measurement. The Voglers helped to popularize this type of instrument during the 18th century. The "Ausburg" were usually octagonal clocks containing a compass with hinges for the hour scale and for the limb (with the latitude scale). The originals were made using brass and glass. The original resides in the Naval Museum of Madrid.
