Medieval Lion Column Sundial

A captivating Medieval column in French jurassic limestone, repurposed in the Art & Crafts period to create this unique and beautiful sundial.
With four sides depicting Lions faces with foliate swags cascading from their mouths.
The capstone holding the copper sundial face is most likely gritstone. This base plinth is the same limestone as the central column.
This piece has the most wonderful verdigris and patination created, not only by centuries of exposure to the elements, but also from the Sun and rain upon the copper dial creating rivulets of colour over the limestone face.
From an exceptional Arts & Crafts country house in Yorkshire, where the sundial was originally composed.
