Pair of 17th Century Stone Urn Top Finials

About

We discovered this large pair of carved stone urn top finials in the far northern reaches of England. Amazing in form and size, their bowed and swagged decoration is subtle and elegant, while their sculptural essence shines. Imagine them raised atop heavy steel poles at differing heights in a contemporary garden or gracing a huge pair of stone pillars. Two old moss-filled cracks were repaired in the 18th or 19th century. The warm, honey-colored surface is appropriately and beautifully weathered with some greening that will turn into moss if they are placed in a shady and moist area. Completely solid and resistant to our Northeastern winters. England, late 17th-early 18th century. We have drilled the top of our stone wall to accept their iron pintels so they stand upright. Just gorgeous!
