English Georgian Bronze Octagonal Sundial

Ref: M2505

This small sundial was fashioned in octagonal form, with incised Roman numerals, a decorative, incised star design at the center and directional abbreviations. It features a lovely gnomon supported by a scrolled bracket, and displays the Latin motto:  Mox Nox, meaning  Soon, the night. These are very difficult to find and this one is in great shape.
