Hand finished for quality
To lock in the shine and keep the plaques ‘glimmering', we apply two coats of super protective lacquer.

Something for every season
Who Are We?
We're a family business and not just in the generic sense. The thing about us, is that every single employee is made to feel welcome and a part of The Metal Foundry family. Let's face it, we're all metalheads!
Why do we love what we do?
Because no matter what anyone says, socks aren't a meaningful gift! We want to be a part of sending messages of love all round the world that can make people laugh, cry, or even both.
Celebrate with your loved ones
HANDMADE IN THE UK – With high quality thick brass, our craftsmen combine simplicity, elegance and durability into every single sundial. And for this first wedding anniversary version, they finished it in white. Some may say it's a bold choice, we say a well-deserved choice. After all, a whole year is something to shout about.
DIMENSIONS – Measuring 6.4″ across by 3″ high, this sundial is just the right size to cast ‘Happy Anniversary. 2023 The First Of Many Wonderful Years together. 1st Wedding Anniversary' into the very fabric of the metal itself.
CARE GUIDE – Each sundial is handmade from real English brass, then coated in two coats of super protective lacquer. This locks in the shine, keeps the white whiter than white and means the lucky beneficiary needn't lift a finger. You may want to give it a wipe when visiting though, to look busy.
PRODUCT FIXINGS – As well as a gnomon (yep, the triangular part of a sundial that casts a shadow has a name), this sundial comes with our large pedestal stand for installing as a traditional sundial outside or as a special display inside. All of our sundials also come with a stand for displaying on a shelf indoors and three required screws.
