Antique Garden Statues & Ornaments 

We usually have a varied selection of antique and vintage garden statues and ornaments varying in size from large antique stone sundials and life size classical statues to vintage terracotta figures and weathered composition stone animals. The materials used reflect changing fashions; high fired terracotta pots by makers like Pulham and Blashfield were popular in the 19th century while lead statuary by the Bromsgrove Guild and H Crowther amongst others had a revival in the early 20th century.
