Tres magnifique! These beautiful Gilt Wood Carved Finials from France! Circa late 1800's. A lot of the gilting has chipped off over the years, but it does not distract from the overall beauty of these wood finals. I personal prefer it with chipping.

All just ever so slightly different, the 5 large ones measure approximately 5 3/4" long, while the little one measures 2 1/2" long.
