The Greenwich Amillary & Tall Grecian Stand
Reproduced from the originals found in formal English gardens, Virginia Metalcrafter's Greenwich Armillary combines impressive size, beautifully detailed castings, and the dramatic contrast of bronze, brass, copper and verdigris aluminum to produce a classic garden accessory. Anchored by a polished copper band, the solid brass arrow shaft with its cast bronze arrow head and feathers tells time by casting a shadow on the beautifully antiqued brass Equator ring. The inner surface of the ring shows the hours of the day, and is decorated with the phases of the moon, while the exterior surface has an intricate Florentine design. The Armillary base is inscribed with the signs of the Zodiac around a bronze sunburst medallion. The base supports two angels, who in turn support the Meridian ring. As with the Equator ring, the Meridian ring is highly decorated and hand finished. 14 inches in diameter, 20 inches high. The Grecian Stand is 27 inches tall, made from cast aluminum with hand applied verdigris finish, this stand will weather the elements for a lifetime. Normally retails for more than $450.
