Antique stable feed troughs

Reference : 2023204

Antique stable feed troughs: These two matching corner feed troughs were carved in French limestone no more recently than the 19th century. They are a classic feature of historic stables where they were embedded into the structural wall in the angle of the stable. This explains the extension of the block on a single side. It is only the 1/4 round part that protruded. Each one has an iron hay rack for the fodder that was positioned in the corner above the trough. One of the hay racks needs some attention (a section to re-weld).

We have seen previous stone corner troughs adapted by clients for re-use as a corner washbasin, which is a very striking feature whether in a historic building or an eclectic contemporary interior. Alternatively they could be integrated into a garden project as a water feature.
