Not that long ago, our Bronze Sundial Compass would have been a necessity of life. Every village and town functioned on local time, depending on local latitude. The arrival of trains and mail coach traffic created a need for coordinated time.

Raising the triangular gnomon upright while pointing the compass needle North will show the time. The correct time will show only if the local latitude corresponds to the angle of the gnomon. Hand-aged and hand-polished bronze dry compass with hand-colored reproduction compass cards.

A unique and thoughtful gift, this handsome reproduction will add old world charm to a desk, bookcase or mantel, this sundial compass is also a terrific educational tool.


  • Bronze sundial compass

  • Hand-aged and hand-polished bronze
