Georgian Carved Stone Baluster Sundial
An elegant Georgian carved Sandstone Baluster shaped sundial with a slate sundial plate, signed ‘Negretti & Zambra London’.
The pedestal is in good structural condition with some knocks and abrasions and historic repairs associated with age. This comes in three sections. The Sundial plate is a later addition. This is made from slate with a Bronze gnomon. The state has been cracked in the past by the corrosion and expansion of an old fixing. It has been repaired. The sundial is not fixed to the pedestal. Reclaimed from a property in Suffolk.
Georgian, George III
