Large Hand Carved 18th Century French Limestone Trough with Patina
One of the finest troughs sourced on our most recent buying trip to France, this stunning hand carved limestone trough is in excellent antique condition and features a fabulous patina with heavy lichen in white, yellow and orange. It has no cracks or repairs and is water-tight. Interior depth is 15.35 inches. Place it in your garden filled with water plants and maybe even a few small koi for a stunning display. There is an original and rusted-through drainpipe on the exterior of one of the short sides that we can cut and remove for you prior to shipping. Please note that in cold winter climates, the trough must be drained and covered, and we recommend that you install it on a concrete slab to prevent sinking and water wicking from the bottom, as it weighs about 2500 lbs.
