Italian sun dial tile for your mosaic tile project centerpiece. Two "mermen" (like Neptune) hold a shield bearing the words "Carpe diem" (seize the day) with Roman numerals. I do not know much about this piece nor was I able to find much information in my research. There is no gnomon (the shadow casting hand) included - only the tile that you see here is the entirety of this listing. Could have been made in the 1980s or 1990s. Made in Italy by Elianthos. It has beautiful green yellow and bronze-brown coloring and a faux wrinkled look to it - only a slight texture. There is one tiny flea bite on the bottom left corner to the left of the word "Made," which probably once set would not show - see photo. Beautiful piece. Seize the day and finish that mosaic tile project you've been wanting to work on!

measures 9 3/4" x 9 3/4"

The shipping cost below is for the Continental United States. My shipping costs for breakables and dress forms include insurance and delivery confirmation. I combine shipping for multiple items purchased from my shop in one order. Since I basically have to guess for most items' shipping costs, I refund shipping overages above $3.00. If the shipping cost for an item turns out to be over and above what I have on the listing, I pay that difference, not the buyer. If for some reason there is a rare exception to that, I will contact the customer. If you would like to have an item shipped to Hawaii, Alaska or internationally, please convo me with your shipping info.

I welcome your questions, drop me an Etsy convo anytime.
