Pair of Large Stone Pineapple Finials or Pier Caps


Contact Dealer To Purchase

Object Description

This striking pair of large stone pineapple finials once resided on the grounds of a prestigious estate. Made in the mid 20th century, they are of impressive scale and beautifully weathered, the details in the composition stone having been preserved beautifully for over half a century. They bare a striking resemblance to the Coade stone pineapple finials found at the National Trust’s Ham House in Surrey (pictured) and are likely based on this iconic design.

Once a symbol of wealth and extravagance, pineapple finials became a well-known addition of entrance architecture throughout the ages. Today, the form remains a symbol of welcome and hospitality, often found in the original architecture and landscaping of formal gardens and houses. These large pineapple garden finials are ideal for use as pier caps to frame a driveway or used to decorate courtyards and balconies, bringing statement and grandeur to any setting.
