Description

Polished Black Stone Sundial. Here is something unusual, something really special. A sundial with a highly polished black stone centre encased in a solid polished brass body.

The brass numerals and the inscription are prominent in relief and highlighted. As a result, they both easy to read and easy to understand. They  form a border around the stone centre.

Inscriptions are important. This one is simple. It says “SUN BRINGS HOPE”. Therefore it makes you ponder, who can argue with that.

Not the farmers, the gardeners, the holiday makers, the surfers or the builders. We all need the sun to make the flowers and the crops grow.

The purpose of SunDials.

Sun dials were used to measure the time by the sun. They were first used by the Egyptians in 1500BC.

Today, they can still be used to tell the time however, their main function is adornment and also to create interest and beauty in outdoor settings.

A really good thing about Sun Dials is , They don’t wear out. once set in place on a plinth or a pedestal they become a permanent fixture for all to enjoy.
