"Scaphé Or Concave Italian Dial Dated 1720"Rare Italian scaphée dial in cardboard, leather and hand-enhanced paper dated 1720 and combined with a rotating calendar. The instrument is built for the latitude of 45 degrees, which is the latitude of Turin in northern Italy. The dial itself is in beautiful condition with all its lines and readable hour numbers written in yellow and black. The original compass in red and white has retained its small hand, still present and magnetized. Above the compass, on a green, yellow and red background, still black, the motorcycle "Nec multitud [in] e nec weightere", the latitude "P. Gr. 45" and the date "1720" . Under the compass, still in black ink, the manufacturer's first name is also well preserved "F. Ioan [n] e" but his name is erased and today impossible to read. In the cover of the dial, a rotating calendar: inside the list of days and outside the months and days. The outer face is partially erased. The instrument is covered with black leather. 7 cm in diameter and 4.4 cm thick. A rather rare form of sundial.
