Solid Brass Henry David Thoreau Owl Sundial 8.5" Dia. Aged Patina Finish (#2329)

  • $90.00

Perfect for the northwoods cottage, this solid brass sundial design features a noble owl surrounded by pinecones. The sundial motto was penned by Henry David Thoreau and reads, “Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads". 

This 8.5” diameter sundial is made by Rome Industries using the ancient art of sand casting. To cast the dial, an impression of the sundial pattern is made into high quality sand designed specifically for brass casting. Molten brass is then poured into a hole in the sand that fills the mold. After cooling, the sand surrounding the sundial is removed and the finishing process begins.

The finish is a beautiful hand rubbed aged patina. The finish is hand buffed & polished which will make for variances in the antiquing and patina from one sundial to another and are normal attributes of our artisan crafted sundials.

This brass dial will requires no care to further develop a rich natural verdigris patina finish over the years. Brass does not rust and is a perfect material for heirloom quality garden art.
