Rare pair of large antique lead rain hoppers or downspouts sourced from an English Manor House in Gloucestershire England. Dated 1899.
In the center there is an eagle clutching a bundle of wheat, probably a Coat of Arms symbolizing the family's strength and prosperity. Columns on either side with a decorative moulding on top and bottom. Could be used as a beautiful water feature or as a stunning pair of wall planters. We had one customer use rain hoppers as lighting along a garden wall. In very good condition given age and use. Price is for pair.
