This hand carved English Romanesque limestone column is centuries old, dating from the Norman era of the 11th and 12th centuries. Originating from Oxfordshire, it is carved and cut by hand, detailed with distinctive herringbone markings that would have once formed part of the pillar section of a doorway on a prominent Norman building. A rare find, this beautifully preserved stone column is a piece of English architectural history, mounted on a bespoke steel stand for use as a sculptural display piece for a live-in museum or interior.
Stone column diameter: approximately 15 cm
While the front half is rounded, the back is an irregular shape where it would’ve once been built into masonry.
