In good condition

Beautiful original marble sundial
The sundial, as shown by pictures, has Roman numerals in bas-relief, and shows both the Latin inscription TEMPUS FUGIT (time goes by), and the Gorgon head, symbol of Italian Neoclassicism. A one of a kind, unique piece, this sundial is quite different from marble ones; it still has its original wrought iron gnomon, fixed with lead, and the original holes to be hung on the wall on its back side.
Provenance: it comes from the private collection of a Roman noble family.
Carefully packaged and shipped by UPS express courier.

- height 60 cm
- width 54 cm

    la volevo avvisare che il corriere UPS ha provato a consegnare piu' volte il pacco al suo indirizzo, ma non trovando nessuno ad attenderlo, dopo di che UPS una volta constatato piu' volte che il destinatario e' assente, lascia il pacco ad un acces point UPS della sua zona, dunque io il mio dovere lo ho fatto lei doveva avere la premura di controllare l'ordine del tracciamento della sua spedizione tramite il portale di Catawiki, e li si accorgeva che il pacco e' fermo ad un acces point UPS della sua zona, lei puo' passare a ritirarlo, le chiedo cortesemente di modificare il suo feedback da neutrale a positivo, come giusto che sia. Grazie.

    Based on the opinion of two different expertise that seller seems to offers rework articles. They take a closer look on two mortar I got and confirm that both of them are not authentic at all.

    A dishonest person and a liar, they are all original objects, this story goes on for 3 months, I sent him an item that had been awarded to the auction, which has been filed after almost a month, and has gone mysteriously stolen by shipment after he Asked if I had another as compensation, I sent him the photos, he liked it, always an original object, he was sent at my expense, when he arrived, he asked for another different, I did see him The photos went well, it was always an original object, it was always shipped I got it, when it came I asked him to close the dispute, did not do it, asked for another item, In practice I sold one item to the auction, but in the end, he finds 3, at this point or that is enough, this person has personality disorders, I swear this is the truth catawiki knows the whole story .
