Large Bronze Armillary Sundial, 28″D

Please note that our showroom is currently closed until further notice.

Large handmade bronze armillary sundial sphere with delicately pierced foliate gnomon arrow and feathers. The armillary sphere rests on a bronze ship's bell. The bell base can be secured to a pedestal with a hidden dowel in the bell.

There is a larger version of this armillary sundial, shown here: 36" diameter bronze armillary.

The armillary sphere is placed on our Carved Limestone Tapered Pedestal , sold separately. (please note that the height of 34" does not include the gnomon's arrow).

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."
