Relógio de sol equinocial, Lorenz Grassel (1740-1805) - Augsburgo - Bronze (dourado) - Final do século XVIII

The equinoctial solar quadrant is a type of sundial that allows its users to locate themselves in time and space. Its small size and the inclusion of a compass make it useful in any city of the world and not in only one place, as was the norm.

That is why numerous travellers and navigators acquired these pieces, which are found today in the most diverse collections as a testimony of historical instruments, but also as pieces admired for their beauty.

The equinoctial clocks by Lorenz Grassel can be found in all the world's major museums such as the Arts et Métiers in Paris.

It is finely decorated with floral motifs and it has all its elements.

The cities that Grassel refers to at the bottom are:

Eleva Poli: Dunckelspiel, Konigsberg
Lyon, Zeitz
Leipzig, Riga
Olmirz and Pisa.

This piece was found by a French citizen during oil exploration works in the Sahara Desert.

The pictures are part of the description. Shipment insured and at pick up point if possible.
