PRODUCT DETAILS
For centuries, humankind has been fascinated with scientific discovery – from the early astronomical breakthroughs of Galileo Galilei, to modern advancements in digital technology. Now, with Hemisferium, you can revisit the dawn of modern science…

Driven by a spirit of inquisitiveness, development and scientific-historic investigation, Hemisferium has rediscovered the wisdom of the ancients to bring to a modern era. Their beautiful (and completely functional) collection of scientific instruments are faithful recreations of the tools that played a vital role in the golden age of Science.

The magnificent Gunter’s Quadrant is a replica of two instruments that date back to the mid nineteenth century that now rests in the Greenwich National Maritime Museum. Modelled off the original instruments used for establishing the sun’s azimuth and the hour of the day, Gunter’s Quadrant comes with a wooden stand so you can proudly display this slice of history on your shelves.

Gunter’s Quadrant features:
  • Made in Spain.
  • Crafted from antique brass.
  • Modelled off two Gunter’s quadrants that date back to the mid nineteenth century.
  • Features a pinule system with a sliding pearl to determine the sun’s height.
  • Includes a pamphlet detailing the history of the piece and the method of operation.
  • Also includes a wooden display stand.
  • Beautifully presented in a Hemisferium gift box.
