Description

A fabulous and rare pair of large and old hand-carved finial balls in quartz-rich granite. They have lain in the garden of a C17th Dorset rectory off the Jurassic Coast for many years. Unusually there is a iron stub at two poles of each ball and a maritime, anchoring original use is not to be discounted. Both spheres still have remnants of the original lead around the fixing stubs, one has a small chunk out beside one stub though this is not seen when "faced" accordingly.
