English Medieval Period Antique Carved Stone Grotesque


English Medieval Period Antique Carved Stone Grotesque


Out of stock

We offer for sale this rare English medieval period antique carved stone grotesque.

Originally found in a Norfolk-based bottle pit and excavated some 40 years ago. It was subsequently placed in a North Norfolk garden since that time as an architectural curiosity until it was acquired by us earlier this year.

Depicting a grimacing face with wide-open eyes, hair and veil, the arms set in front with joined hands. Quite a menacing figure! This carving most probably adorned the external corner façade of a medieval church tower or another high-status building of the same period.

Condition – surface wear is commensurate with age (weathered). Please refer to the images.  This displays very well. A further detailed condition report is available upon request.

Size: Height 44.5 cm x Width 25.5 cm x Depth 28 cm (17 1/2″ x 10″ x 11″)
