A very fine bronze sundial, the circular plate calibrated with hours, minutes and compass points within a floral border, inscribed “As These Hours Doth Pass Away /So Doth The Life Of Men Decay”, with a solid gnomon, English, ca. 1900. 15 ins. diameter, 9 ins. height of gnomon.
Barbara says, "A large sundial plate like this can sometimes be placed on a flat rock and be very effective".
