Classical Rotonda or Garden Gloriette
Sculpted limestone rotonda or garden gloriette in classical style with a wrought iron dome. Made in the early 20th century. The Rotonda has six fluted columns and benches with scrolled feet in between them. The pilars are carved in a classical style with Corinthian capitals on top and rest on rectangular plinths, which panels are decorated with sculpted fruit and bow ornaments. The circle shaped architrave or frieze is decorated with fruit guirlandes and ribbons. The wrought iron semi-circular dome is hand made with curl and ribbon shapes, crowned with a pinacle in the shape of flowers.
Beautiful as garden ornament and we can imagine a wedding being held in this romantic gazebo.
The rotonda is 450 cm in height and 300 cm in diameter. The seat height is 58 cm.
