Magnificent 18th cent Sundial

English Garden Antiques

Magnificent 18th cent Sundial

Magnificent 18th cent Sundial

by Benjamin Martin (1704-1782). Cheshire Sandstone.
66" tall x 44" diam. £5,950.00

Provenance: The Benjamin Martin Sundial.

The Sundial was unearthed (literally) in 2015 on land that was previously owned by The Earl of Stamford as part of the Dunham Massey Estate, Cheshire.
The Sundial was brought to my attention by a friend/colleague who specialises in Antique Oak Beams and who was conducting a clearance of several properties on the Estate.
The Sundial was discovered almost totally buried in compost in the woods surrounding the properties.
I bought it from him and undertook to have it “excavated” from the site (no mean feat!) and moved to my premises, which was only 2 miles away.
In the meantime, we have been in regular contact with the British Sundial Society (BSS) regarding the removal of the verdigris from the plate to reveal the maker’s name B. (Benjamin) Martin (1704 – 1782), who was an important London instrument maker.

A rare find indeed!
