Whitewashed Carved Finials come in a set of 3. We love the grace and casual chic these finials bring to a mantle, book case, or dresser. Finials have been used in architecture to draw attention to the pinnacle of large buildings to add sophistication and beauty. Many cultures believed that they would ward off unwanted energy and bless inhabitants of a structure. Today’s finials dress up any space, and add elements of varying shapes and visual textures.
