Pair of brass finials. 24.5 cm tall. Upper diameter, 9 cm. Two sections. Cylindrical base. Upper section shaped like a two-dimensional pomegranate – with nice decorative holes. This type of finial was ordered and made for the poor Yemenite communities. Collectors are attracted by their simplicity. Fine condition. Two small holes at the base of one finial, apparently from the time they were made.
