RGC-VA14 Acorn Lead Finial

Acorn Lead Finial

Shown here is the Acorn finial in English lead.

As Gertrude Jekyll the famous English garden designer pronounced firmly "There can scarcely be a doubt that the happiest material for our garden sculpture and ornament is lead."  Lead has been used to decorate and shape English gardens for centuries.  It's a wonderful and durable material that is naturally resistant to any type of corrosion and cracking as well as impervious to harsh winters, sea-salt air, and inclement environments.  When left exposed to wind, weather, and time, it will develop a beautiful grey patina that will last generations.  See our blog A History of English Lead if you would like to read more on the history of lead.
