Medium sized carved limestone trough. Good proportions. Top rim notched on both sides. Edges warn smooth from usage. This old farm trough is full of character and would make a beautiful water feature or planter. Many troughs were set into field walls so that they can serve stock in two fields. The notches located on the top were most likely from sandstone dividers or bars that went across the middle. Imported from England.
