An English antique staddle stone for your garden. This mushroom shaped stone was originally a support for an English granary building, which served to elevate the structure above ground level, allowing for air circulation and preventing rodents from getting into the granary. Most of these stones date from the 18th or early 19th century. It consists of a vertical base that supports a dome-shaped cap stone. Size: approx. 25" ht. x 18" diameter. Each staddle stone has its own special character, defined by its particular form and shape. This staddle stone will serve as a distinctive accent to any garden setting. Only one remaining.
