Object Description

A very large antique limestone trough planter or fountain circa 1800. It is extremely rare to find a limestone trough like this with so little weathering and losses after more than 220 years. Originating from late 18th century England, this antique limestone trough tells the story of a talented maker with evidence of chisel and hand worked marks throughout. In the 21st century, it makes an impressive garden planter that’s steeped in history, offering more than 1.3 m of planting area. Alternatively, it could be paired with a fountain in to create a beautiful focal point in a walled garden or yard.
