    Found this a few years ago. I first didn't know what it was. I searched the scripted and found out it's a sundial! It's dated 1721. The light goes through a pin hole and strikes the area to give a time you have to move the hole to the specified month.. its attached to a chain and hung around your neck. Definitely hand made.

      Nice looking Charlie, it would be nice if it was that old! Hope you didn't pay as if it was that old. I like it though, it would be fun to have, if it works to tell the time! :^)
