8" Small Octagonal Sundial Plate with the inscription "Time Flies."

Imported from England.

We have a range of decorative English lead sundial plates from 8 inch square or round through to 17 inch round and with varying styles.

Sundials are one of the oldest tools for measuring time. The Egyptians used a shadow stick or shadow clock as early as 1500 BC. The vertical stick or "gnomon" marked the time of day by the length and position of the stick's shadow. Gnomon in Greek means "the one that knows".
