GARDEN & LANDSCAPE OBELISKS

EGYPTIAN IN ORIGIN, OBELISKS WERE BROUGHT TO ROME IN THE FIRST CENTURY BC. THE OBELISK THEN ENTERED INTO THE CLASSICAL VOCABULARY, BEING MODIFIED AND DEVELOPED INTO A DECORATIVE FEATURE IN THE ENGLISH LANDSCAPE FROM THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY ONWARDS. Ideal for formal or landscape gardens, defining a vista, at the centre of a courtyard or as a balustrade ornament.

Balustrade Obelisk E545

A charming small obelisk for use inside or out. Equally at home on a chimney piece hearth, a window cill, or in the garden.

This obelisk has been designed for positioning on a Haddonstone balustrade pier as an interesting alternative to an urn or finial. It may also act as a freestanding obelisk when used in conjunction with a B400, B420 or B440 plinth (see page 61).

An obelisk in Gothic style, ideally suited to form a focal point in a small garden.

This imposing structure would make an impressive focal point in any major landscape project aimed at celebrating a unique event. Steps also available, see page 181.
