$54.99 Sold Out
Bring a bit of timeless, heavenly style to your yard with this Esschert Design Cast Iron Armillary Sundial with Sunbursts. Armillary spheres were used centuries ago to map the movement of stars around the earth, while sundials noted the celestial time. This fantastic piece combines the two instruments, and its hardy, cast iron construction creates a lasting garden accent. A 9.5" diameter band has raised Roman numerals around it, and sunburst accents on the exterior of this piece offer a bit of texture and style. This arc affixes to the curved armillary arm, and a three-dimensional sun shape in the center of the base brings a bold look to the unit. Slide the included, 15" long arrow through the upper and lower arcs, which acts as a gnomon for telling the time when the item is oriented celestial north. Black hints throughout the dark brown unit lend it an aged, classic look, while the cast iron construction lasts for many seasons of service. A 4.25" diameter, stepped conical base provides a bit of height, and enables the instrument to be displayed on a pedestal or the ground easily. Brilliantly accent your yard or flowerbed using this Cast Iron Armillary Sundial with Sunbursts. Assembly required.
