Antique Stone Troughs

Antique stone troughs are true pieces of art.

Lichens and moss add to the beauty of the piece.

 No two troughs are ever the same.

Usable antique troughs are becoming very scarce.

These wonderful antique stone relics live on for centuries becoming more beautiful over time.

Did you know that for thousands of years, antique stone troughs were hand carved from a single block of stone? Their production abruptly stopped about 200 years ago, when the industrial revolution in Europe made cast iron a faster and less labor-intensive endeavor. Each chisel mark, still visible today on the rough surface of the stone, tells a story and we think you will agree that owning one of these antique troughs is akin to owning a piece of history, one that will never be duplicated. Nowadays, these beautiful rustic stone troughs are becoming rare and are used as garden features, planters or converted into elegant water fountains. The beauty of troughs‘ patina is unrivalled, and connoisseurs will appreciate their uniqueness.



We consider them to be true pieces of art.
