Originally attached to a French building, this pair of terra cotta fleur de lys finials is from circa 1880. The finials still retain their original terra cotta orange color but have developed a dark gray patina from years of exposure to the elements.
Each of the lower “petals” is comprised of a volute scroll that merge to form an open roundel. The area between the petals is embellished with a lozenge patterned background. The upper petal has a textured background behind a lobed leaf. Both finials sit on top of a square base with quarter round edges. Our pair of French terra cotta fleur de lys finials can still be used as outdoor architecturals or displayed inside as an accessory.
CONDITION: Wear commensurate to age and use with minor losses, nicks, and buildup. When these old architecturals were removed from the building, some material was left behind, making the finials different depths. The larger finial has age separations.
