   Pair of English 19th century finials


A fine pair of mid-19th century English cast stone finials with draped garlands held by four lion heads. Attributed to Austin and Seeley. Felix Austin began his business in 1828 describing himself variously as an architect, statuary mason and sculptor as well as artificial stone maker. His material was made from Portland cement, broken stone, pounded marble and coarse sand (The Builder 1868) and he encouraged leading architects and designers to work for him. Around 1840 he entered into partnership with John Seeley who also made an artificial stone.
