19th-century marble pedestal carved with swords, helmets, shields, and ribbons. Egg-and-dart detail is topped with a hand- etched bronze-equated sundial.

Marsh” and “Londini” (Latin for London). The verse is the same as on the sundial that was mounted on St David’s Chapel in Stormontfield, Scotland to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria (1837-1897). Origin: Scotland. An RT Facts Find.
