Who we are
Founded in 1964, Rome is a 3 generation family business with a focus on enjoyment in the outdoors. Our company has two core product lines.
Outdoor Cookware - Known for our original Pie Iron sandwich cookers and large selection of roasters, marshmallow and s'more forks, we have everything you need to make campfire memories.
Garden Decor - We manufacture true pieces of art with our heirloom quality, solid brass sundials.
Solid Brass Sundials
We choose brass for the majority of our Rome sundial designs because it’s a material without compromise. Brass has been a favored medium by artisans throughout the world for thousands of years.
For a moderate price, brass gives us an heirloom quality sundial that we can trust will last for hundreds of years. Naturally non-rusting, brass requires no upkeep. Simply let it age gracefully in the garden where it will, overtime, develop a prized patina finish.
Our brass sundials are cast and finished with 1 of 3 different finishes that are unique to each sundial design. We do not offer each dial in all 3 finishes. The finishes we make are:
Aged Patina Finish - A natural ages look which combines a softer brass background with varying degrees of of verdigris surface.
Polished w/Verdigris Highlights - The background is verdigris and the raised areas are polished for a two-tone finish.
Polished Brass - No faux finish on this dial, just polished to a shine.
Rome Solid brass sundials will mount on all Rome pedestal bases.
