Solid Brass Rosette Sundial 10.5" dia. (#2304)
"I am silent without the sun," reads the motto on Rome's strikingly elegant solid brass Rosette sundial. The ornamentation and fine detailing pay reverence to European gothic design; while a bold polished gnomon shoots skyward.
This 10.5” 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, t he sand surrounding the sundial is removed and the finishing process begins.
The sundial is given a two-tone antique finish that has a nice contrast between the verdigris of the flat & recessed parts of the dial with the polished letters and raised features. The finish is hand buffed & polished which will make for slight variances in the antiquing and polishing 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.
