About

This large pair of artichoke finials have a great sculptural quality and make a great archtectural statment. Hand carved fron vinchenza stone ( a produced stone made from portland cement and decoposing lime stone).This man made product is easy to carve and holds details well ,plus has the added advantage of being lighter in weight and ages very well taking on a rich surface patina.These would have benn used on stone piers for gates or steps or perhaps part of a large over door surround. But would also look great set indoors now on pedestals or in urns
