An extraordinary design, but very cleverly created, to provide both a sundial and a bird bath, or bird feeder. The sail of the boat is in fact the gnoman or sun catcher, its sharp outline is perfect. All hand made in high grade brass, the bowl of the sundial has been finished with a satin black finish, whilst the Roman numerals are finished in black relief. The gnomon sail has been left in bright polished brass. This sundial can be purchased on its own, or with a lovely, ornate column, designed especially for it. The column is also heavy and well made, with a Victorian feel. YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE YOUR COLUMN SEPARATELY.

The story of Black County Metal Works began over twenty five years ago with the dreams of one man, Mr Eric Schubert, a highly skilled metal worker who lived and worked in the Black Country. His passion in life was metal and the many wonderful items that could be created from this versatile raw material. Although he is now retired, the business and passion has passed to his son-in-law, whose own father was both an engineer and designer, and his grandson. Family ties are still very strong and the founder, Eric Schubert, is still very much involved in the design and creation processes.
