Welsh Carved Stone and Bronze Sundial
We rarely find sundials with simple, elegant lines such as these, but this one is a stand-out. In three parts, and with its original bronze octagonal plate and straight gnomon, it would make a strong architectural statement in a herb or boxwood garden. The motto on the plate reads "I Count The Bright Hours Only". In beautiful condition, with a couple of very minor chips to the base. The stone has blackened over time due to the heavy coal dust in Wales during the early 20th C.
Welsh, CA 1910.
