Now this is a real treasure. It's a 16th century astronomical clock which normally resides over the gateway between the outer Base Court and the inner Clock Court. But the gateway is being restored, so for the time being the clock components are propped up against a wall (as can be seen in the previous photo), so I got to have a good look at them.

This apparatus is listed in the 1885 catalogue of Jules Duboscq of Paris as the “Grand Circle of MM. Jamin et Sénnarmont.” It was designed for the study of the laws of polarized light reflected from crystalline substances, liquids and metals. It could also be used to measure indices of refraction. With its accessories, it cost 1,000 francs (about $200). The circle is an early example of an ellipsometer, used to study the reflection of light at or near Brewster's angle.

Device with Unknown Purpose - Astrolabe, orrery, gyroscope...  many of us have heard the words.  Can you work them, or explain them?  This device, this does something different.  I knew what it was, just a moment ago, hold on...
