Finial

This wrought iron finial was made by the Edinburgh ironworks firm of Thomas Hadden. It dates from the late 19th or early 20th century.

The finial is in the shape of a poppy with four petals and a central stamen.

In the late 19th and early 20th century, Scottish firms such as Haddens underwent a revival due to increasing interest in Scottish styles and workmanship of wrought iron. This tradition had declined earlier in the 19th century due to mass production of cheaper cast iron.
