Pair of French Limestone Ball Gate Pier Finials
These hand-carved limestone finials date to the late 18th C and are real eye-catchers! They feature a beautifully-weathered surface and one has lots of moss that will green up and flourish if placed in a moist and shady spot. The other spent most of its life in the sun, but still has a lovely patina. Minor chips to both bases that are commensurate with age. Perfect atop a wall or pair of stone gate piers flanking your garden or driveway entrance. Each is carved from a single piece of limestone!
