Our cold cast bronze sundials are a nice happy medium alternative to solid brass. These dials are made from a crushed stone and resin material and coated on the outside with a layer of real bronze. The result is a dial that has the appearance of solid bronze as the price that is quite a bit lower. Left outside the bronze will develop a natural patina just like other brass or bronze dials. However, since the base material is a stone resin, it’s important to bring the dial into a garage or indoors during cold winters. There is a risk of cracking if left outside all winter.
All bronze cold cast sundials purchased from GardenSundials.com are gift wrapped and include historical information and instructions on properly setting up the dial in the garden.
