Octagonal slate dial plate Signed James O’Farrell 1810. The inscribed latitude of 53 degrees and 32 minutes combined with the Celtic appellation points to this dial to being made in Dublin. The plate is also engraved in radial degrees, each hour varying dependent on how far the location of the fabricated is from the equator. Cast bronze and finished gnomon pinned in a typical fashion but also fitted into an engraved slot for extra rigidity.
