Antique Sandstone Trough

Please note that our showroom is currently closed until further notice.

Antique hand hewn sandstone trough. No drainage hole but could easily be added for planter use.    
A trough is usually a long, narrow, open stone container, usually box-like and most often used to feed or water animals. Troughs can be square, round,     or D-shaped. Larger D-shaped troughs were used in villages with a pump for water. Many troughs have tethering holes so that animals could be tied to     them.    
Stone troughs were hewn or carved from sandstone, limestone, granite, or even marble, usually a local stone.    
Troughs make a wonderful garden planter, can be used as a fountain or water feature, or simply as a naturalistic focal point in the garden. Uniquely     carved no two troughs are ever the same.
