Sally Hersh - Sundials of Distinction

Eclipse Wall Dial

Welsh Slate
915mm x 585mm (36" x 23")

This wall sundial was commissioned and designed to celebrate the total eclipse of the sun on 11th August 1999, the Millennium and also the client's birthday. It is accurate for Bantham, Devon.

The hourlines, numerals and lettering at the top of the dial are gilded and the porcelain markers along the Eclipse line are made to represent the sun and moon.

The compass rose indicates the interest of the client in sailing and the gnomon, which lies along the 10 o'clock line, is fretted from bronze sheet.

Wall sundial prices from £4,500 ex workshop.
