Cast Iron Armillary Sundial (#1339)
This medium sized iron armillary sundial is a value priced dial that looks nice mounted to a Rome iron pedestal or attached to your existing stone or concrete base. Item has a tension bold that allows it to be adjusted to your latitude for better accuracy. While the dial is iron, the 20” arrow is made of solid brass.
The dial is 17” overall height with a 20” arrow length. The time band is 11” wide.
Cast iron has been a popular metal for garden décor since the 19th century. Developed as an affordable alternative to bronze, it was the metal that first brought garden art to the backyards of the middle class. While heavy and long lasting, the very real trade off with cast iron is that it rusts. The rust finish in garden art has a large
following and is an important part of the French country and the shabby chic look.
Our cast iron dials are painted with a base coat, applied with a verdigris finish and then lacquered to stave off each oxidation. To keep your dial from rusting, a spray lacquer application as needed is required.
Gift wrapping is not available on this sundial due to the product size.
