Stone Carved Inpost
GARDEN, STONE CARVING
Created as part of the Classical detailing to a garden folly building. The in-post is set over a pilaster capital with unique mouldings to both the pilaster capital and the in-post that are found only on this estate. The front and side faces of the in-posts are fluted and carry a small corbel console over, supporting a broken, raking pediment that is set back in line with the arch over. The carving around the in-posts matches that of swags elsewhere on the building, with beech leaves, bluebells and a rose to the centre being carved in one piece of stone with the swag passing up to the lower curve of the console, as if the swag was growing from the stone. A tight, dense English sandstone was used in order to provide the very best quality of stone for the carving.
