Large Solid Brass
Armillary Sphere Garden Sundial
The solid brass on this large Armillary Sphere Sundial has a green verde patina finish with polished highlights.
The Armillary Sphere Sundial is one of the most accurate sundials ever made, and this model is perfect for a garden sundial or interior home decoration.
Based on the position of the sun, the sundial can easily be set to read local time.
Time is determined by the arrow of the Armillary Sphere which points polar North and the gnomon casts a shadow onto the equatorial band
which is cast with raised Roman numerals.
This allows a linear 15 degree per hour scale.
The large sundial is beautifully decorated with sun and moon symbols and is supported by an adjustable
clamp that can be set to your local latitude.
The heavy solid brass base is mounted on turned solid hardwood, and felt covers the bottom of the base.
The Armillary Sphere is large and heavy, measuring 16 1/2 inches (42 cm) tall,
the equatorial band has a diameter of 13 inches (33 cm), and the sundial weighs 7.8 pounds (3.5 kg).
The Large Armillary Sphere Garden Sundial is available for $82.50.
We also offer a smaller Armillary Sphere Sundial
and a smaller decorative Armillary Sphere Sundial on a hardwood base.
