Glass Sundial Image Archive
These pages include all suitable available images of glass sundials, past and present, from around the world. We arranged them in chronological order by century and by maker and have categorized them into four different groups: stained glass, etched glass and plastic, and mosaic. We've taken a certain amount of liberty to digitally improve poor quality photographs and drawings to show more accurately sundial shapes, design details and colors. Sadly, many of the sundial windows shown here have been lost, destroyed or are in private collections and are unavailable for public viewing, so these images are all that's left for us to study and enjoy.
