Solid Brass Nautical Sundial 8.5" Dia. (#2314)
A classic compass rose centerpiece with sea serpent gnomon gives this dial a real nautical feeling. The polished solid brass dial features the popular sundial motto, “Count only sunny hours.”
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 sundial is given a hand polished finish. This solid 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. If you wish to keep the brass polished, we suggest buffing with a brass polisher as needed.
