Sweet Little Antique Carved Acorn Finial in Gold and Black

Regular price $35.00

I'm not sure what this smallish carved acorn finial once topped, but I love it just as a sculptural little carving, all the better for the old gold and black paint on it. Found in New Hampshire, I believe it is American, and I'd guess late 19th c. The recess at the very center of the top does not appear to be a hole, just a recess, but it does seem to invite piercing it should one wish to, say, fly a little flag on top.

4" t x 2" wide and deep and in very good condition, with a bit of paint loss here and there, minor and not at all detracting I think.
