Armillary Sundials

Whilst we know that time stands still for no man, what better way to "mark it" than by having your own antique armillary proudly displayed in your own beloved garden. Please also see our range of: Garden Sundial Columns.

Our armillaries are ornamental. In some cases, owing to the artistic design, do not provide true and accurate time readings. Please contact us if you need any additional advice.

  2. Product Information

    This regal armillary comes complete with the matching column. The design is made from cast aluminium with a beautiful polished antique silver finish. We have chosen to fill in the detail by hand with an antique black to highlight the lovely markings and give a feeling of depth to the decoration and numeral design. Please note that this item was designed primarily for indoor use or for covered outdoor areas. It can be placed outside providing it is given a regular coat of yacht varnish, or similar, to preserve the stunning finish.

  3. Product Information

    The genuine article, an armillary made from wrought iron and antiqued in our own special finish.

    This really does provide a beautiful statement in your garden. This Armillary has been weighted so that it doesn’t fall over in the wind, like many cheaper alternatives. However we still recommend using mastic or all weather adhesive to secure the item to your column or chosen surface. 

    We also recommend either a light oiling every season or the use of a recommended metal paint like hammerite. Ours are painted to provide a very rustic aged appearance.

    "If it was my choice I would suggest leaving your Armillary to age naturally."

    Clive Knowles (Managing Director)

  5. Product Information

    This is one of our tallest Armillaries, created to be a real statement of style, both in size and design. Complete with a very handsome integral stand the inspiration was to provide a lasting centre piece for the garden, with a reference to the millennium and gods creation in tandem with Mother Nature. Standing at over 6 ft tall, the Millennium Globe Armillary is made from graceful loops of steel fitted together to form the splendid globe.

    We then styled and cast a column from bright bold aluminium. We finally cast the arrow and flight from solid brass. The frivolous combination of these three metals and finishes is very striking and poignant. The result is a fascinating and very original piece of landscape artwork. To date this remains one of our masterpieces, of which we are extremely proud.

  7. Product Information

    The Serpent Armillary, this is an armillary that certainly belongs in a garden or terrace of discernable quality. It is the biggest and heaviest armillary that we have ever created, and is quite awe inspiring to see.

    It features the neck and head of a serpent about to strike its prey, which curves at the top of the armillary, whilst the arrow which passes through the middle of the armillary has a very finely detailed head and flight. Ornate decoration and classic roman numerals complete the design.
