Item #05997

Description:
An English ca. 1900 carved Cotswold stone wrythen baluster with stepped square base and square top, with replaced later bronze sundial plate. 44.25 ins. high including gnomon. 41 ins. high to top of pedestal; 13 ins. square at top., 13.5 ins. square at bottom.  On a carved grist millstone, American, mid-19th century. 22 ins. diameter, 4 ins. high.  Overall height 48.25 ins.

Barbara says, "This sundial has an elegant baluster and perfect proportions.  The later bronze dial plate has my favorite sort of decorative gnomon to direct the shadow to the right number.  Sundials have classic locations--either near the front of a house or in Colonial Revival style at the center of a small rose garden".
