HISTORY: For thousands of years humans have recognized the passage of time, whether through the cycle of night and day or by the passing of the seasons. Our current method of timekeeping, which uses a 60-second minute, a 60-minute hour and a day divided into two 12 hour periods, originated over 4,000 years ago in Mesopotamia and Egypt. The Ancient Egyptians built great obelisks to track the sun, creating the first sundials. In 600 BC, philosopher and astronomer Anaximander is said to have introduced the sundial to Greece and from there it grew in popularity and was the most trusted timekeeping device for centuries. Sundials still remained in use even with the invention of mechanical clocks, as early clocks were notoriously inaccurate and had to be regularly calibrated using a sundial. Around 1600, English mathematician William Oughtred invented the ring dial, a small portable sundial that quickly came into common use throughout Europe. It consists of a brass ring which, when suspended vertically and oriented towards the sun, can be used to determine the time of day. The interior surface of the ring has numbers corresponding to the hours of the day and the exterior has letters corresponding to the months of the year. A narrow band of brass slides along a groove set in the exterior surface of the ring. The movable band has a hole in it, which can be aligned with the letters, or months, on the exterior of the ring. The hole in the band allows sunlight to pass through and strike the numbers on the interior surface indicating the time of day.

The wreath comes complete with an icon and icon case. The real color of the wreath corresponds to the first photo. A unique collection item of Ukrainian women’s clothing of the 18th century. The wreath is made of wax. It was made for a wedding and was dressed only once. After the wedding, he remained in the icon and served as a talisman. The technology of creating such wreaths was interesting – the linen fabric served as the frame of each element. The finished element dipped in hot wax and cooled solidified. This was done for greater strength and preservation. Wax wreaths are extremely rare, as the units have survived to this day. This wreath was in the personal collection. Another couple of copies are in the local museums of Ukraine. The item is in very good condition and can be a decoration for any collection of rare items. See other my sell. The item “Ultra Rare!
