Pair of American Gothic Revival Limestone Architectural Finials

Pair of American Gothic Revival Limestone Architectural Finials

Ref: AR5649

Removed from a mansion in Milwaukee, WI, that was demolished in the 1960s, these hand carved stone architectural elements reflect a French Gothic influence. With a simple, bullet shape, having a pointed front and top, each displays a panel of a conventionalized acanthus leaf motif. Notice the worn patina of years of exposure, which lends a warm, aged feeling to the pieces. Four of these are available.

c. 1880
W 6 D 6.5 H 13.5 in.
