Long Description:
Two sundials attributed to Zarbula are on a building on the Via Gran Serin in Balboutet, Val Chisone, Piemonte, Italy. One is a simple dial declining east on an upper gable. The other is a more traditional Zarbula sundial declining a bit west of south facing. This was restored by L. Bougoun

The plaque attributes the dials to Zarbula but I have my doubts. These are the farthest east of any Zarbula's sundials. They contain his style features but not his artistry. Perhaps this due to the restorations. The style elements indicate late in Zarbula's carear but the date reference is 1833. Actually the dials are not dated or signed.
Sundial Type: Vertical - Wall mounted dial plate
