Awesome addititon to our pond! My husband loved this twist on the 1st anniversary gift. The contemporary suggestion for a 1st anniversary gift is a clock...so I bought a sundial. We spend most of our time outside and around our koi pond. The sundial is a perfect addition to the pond. He proposed at the pond, so it adds more meaning to our special place.
Beautiful finish! Product is accurately described & performs well. Mounting on the website-suggested pedestal is another matter entirely. It was necessary for me to fabricate a weatherproof "adapter" plate to attach this sundial to the pedestal that was sent - but incorrectly described by the online literature, pictures, etc. In the end, however, the completed assembly looks good & is functional...
Classier sundial than many. I haven't calibrated it yet so I can't vouch for its accuracy, but one nice feature is that the angle of the gnomon can be adjusted independently of the base, so you don't have to be too fussy about where to put it. It's pretty solid, looks nice, and I think it should weather well even outside in lots of rain (I live in Oregon). This sundial would not look on the ground, however: it's too small and doesn't have the proper base for being on the ground. You should plan to mount it either on a pedestal or a table (or large rock or whatever). I just had one minor complaint: the gnomon (an 'arrow') is a little too loose in its mount and slips down, so the back points of the 'arrowhead' wind up resting against the mount instead of sitting an inch or so above it (which would look a bit better).
Beautiful garden piece! I bought this for my husband for Father's Day. I placed it on a cement pedestal, and it looks absolutely beautiful in our backyard, next to some hydrangeas and tiger lillies! The design is elegant and the weight of it is solid. It looks very pretty in the sunlight since the brass shines! I highly recommend a pedestal base for this sundial so it is visible from a distance in your yard. Love it!
