Handcarved French Limestone Fountains and Fireplace Mantels and other Design Elements
Landscape design and curb appeal can be greatly enhanced using custom carved French limestone wall and market fountains. Such a water feature carved by our craftsmen complements the front of the house or backyard landscaping. The French Estaillade limestone that we use is a soft but frost resistant material that weathers extremely fast and will look like antique limestone in a very short time. Our French limestone fountains are still hand carved and distressed by craftsmen in France with the same techniques and care as was done in past centuries. No two French limestone fountains are alike. Color variations in the limestone as well as different techniques from craftsmen to craftsmen will make each fountain unique. Vintage Elements complements these limestone fountains with aged cast iron spigots that resemble their antique and centuries old predecessors. Our fountain designs are based on existing fountains throughout France, giving our customer over 40 choices of fountain designs. If you are shopping for a custom carved limestone fireplace mantel for your house, then you should consider our French hand-carved mantels. Carved by French craftsmen out of beautiful limestone, our French fireplace mantels provide unmatched beauty and are a great design element. They too are carved according to old designs and resemble mantels of farm houses and manor homes of times long past. Besides French limestone fountains and fireplace mantels, Vintage Elements also offers a variety of custom carved limestone products, such as columns, entrance gates, window and door surrounds, medallions and more. If you have a drawing or photo of a fountain, mantel or other object you would like to have carved out of limestone, please contact us and we will provide you with a quote.
