Our verdigris armillary spheres are gloriously grand, and yet their soft bronzed colours make them look as though they have been in your garden for years. The darkness of the metal will be a great foil for sharp greens so would look excellent placed close to evergreen or beech hedging.
As with all our dials they are made for your precise location and will tell the time perfectly. They come in a range of sizes and give plenty of space for your own personalised messages, dedications and mottoes. Our larger dials add a magnificent focal point to long vistas and avenues in more extensive grounds.
In addition to the main bands, your verdigris armillary will be embellished as standard with extra rings representing the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, and the Polar Circles, as well as having an arrow head and tail.
These grand garden adornments make exceptional presents and offer the chance to record special dates and events in a most unusual form. As there is plenty of space for your inscription, mottoes, dedications and dates, so you can create a very special gift that will be treasured for a long time to come. If you need inspiration for your dedication, we have some ideas you might like here and also have more information on engraving here.
We also supply hand crafted plinths designed by master stonemasons local to Wells in the West Country or hand cut at our local quarry here in the Black Mountains. Our collection of verdigris armillary spheres below shows these beautiful dials in different settings and with different plinths.
