Overview
How did people long ago tell time when the sun went down? The Nocturlabe, an "horologium nocturnale"—literally, time instrument for night—was one answer. It was used to measure the time based on the relative positions of two or more stars in the sky. Reproduced from a nocturlabe made in 1570 by Girolamo della Volpaia and now in a museum in Florence, Italy, this replica is beautifully made and fascinating to study. An elegant piece of science and history for your collection. About 5 ½" diameter, 6 ½" high on wood stand.
