In this lot we present quite a rare, antique pocket wooden compass with solar clock.
In 20 years, we stumble upon such an item for the first time. The compass is artisan, hand-made.
Originating in Europe. Has hinged, wooden body with compass dial and solar clock "function".
The solar clock has Arabic numerals carved onto both lids. The numbers on the upper lid run counterclock wise and
the numbers on the compass part run clockwise. The compass needle shows North correctly. 

The wooden body has wearing due time, naturally. Line-dents and chips at the edges. Scratches on the compass glass.
The original glass covering the compass dial is preserved. The compass is made to be worn as a pendant as well. 

Body height x width x thickness: 67 x 51 x 18 mm / 2.63 x 2 x 0.70 inches
Compass dial diameter: 25 mm / 0.98 inches

Used by travelers or possibly travelling monks. Super-rare, authentic antique artisan pocket compass with solar clock from 1789. 
Historic memorabilia from a bygone age.
