Pair of Carved and Painted Bellflower Finials, Canada, 19th century, the carved flowers hanging from arched leafy stems emanating from a "vase" with reeded sides, old white paint with remnants of green and gold paint as well as traces of gilding, ht. 43 1/2 in.
several of the thin "arms" broken and repaired, minor losses, one base with thin piece of wood added to underside, likely just to create a flat surface so that it sits flush on a table top or shelf.
