Sunny Hours Sundial Compass Desktop Paperweight
Since the dawn of civilization humans have tried to organize the day by the motion of the sun, moon, and stars. Shadow clocks, later named sundials, were invented by Greeks and Romans and used by explorers during our age of discovery. The sundial played a fundamental role in finding local time. Watches were notoriously unreliable and often needed to be reset by using sun-time. And up till the 20th C. each locality had its own miniature time zone, often differing in minutes only. By pointing the triangular style (gnomon) with the number 12 due North, the shadow of the style will point at the sunny hour.

I'm very pleased with my purchase i wouldn't say it's "realistic looking" as the branches are the normal plastic looking ones but for the price it's well worth it I love how big it is
Both the product & service surpassed all expectations. I would highly recommend this company. This timber sailing boat was a present for my young grandson who has just starting sailing. Nestz were so helpful & ensured the courier delivery was in time for the birthday. This was very much appreciated. Thankyou so much Nestz !

I ordered this product and it was dispatched promptly. However, I messed up my address so the couriers got confused (entirely my mistake). Nestz were very helpful in organising to change the address and get it delivered as soon as possible. It arrived in good condition.
I have since constructed the table and we are very happy with the quality of the product and the value for money.

We bought hot air balloon mobile and have hung it from the ceiling in our atrium and it looks fantastic. Love the way it moves very slightly just like the balloons a floating around each other. We also bought individual hot air balloons to add to the look, so it looks like some a closer and others are further away. Every time we go in there we just loving looking at them, take you to another time and place.
