Description

Equinoctial sundial, known as Augsburg clock. The original was made by Johann Georg Vogler (1720-1765) who belonged to the fourth generation of a legendary line of goldsmiths in Germany. The Voglers contributed to the popularization of this instrument in the 18th century. The Augsburg clocks usually were octagonal planes that contained a compass with hinge clamps that allowed the hour scale and the limbo (with a scale of latitudes) to rotate. The originals were made of brass and glass.
