Centuries-old French limestone wellhead
Centuries-old French limestone wellhead : This simple square wellhead with its cylindrical shaft was hand-carved from a single piece, and is as pure as they can be in form and worn patina. It never had a gantry or winding gear. However the 4 little threaded bars that are visible at the upper corners were there to secure a protective metal or plate glass sheet. Although its age is unknown, judging by its wear and general appearance it is 18th century or older. This stone wellhead is ideal for a historic garden or courtyard, whether or not it is re-instated as a well-head.
