Antique 19th century English Bronze and Faux Bois Sun Dial features an inscribed sun dial in bronze and brass atop a faux bois pedestal that was designed and finished to resemble an old tree stump.  Cast in a terra cotta/earthenware material, it was then given a bark like finish.  The base is stamped LC.  The dial features an embossed compass rose, allows one to orient it with a compass when setting up in your garden, and has the charming phrase engraved at it's bottom:  "Sun's Tyme Only" meaning it would not tell time with moonlight.  A great garden ornament!
Circa 1890s
