Ashley River Angel

Historic Charleston Fans you need the Ashley River Angel adorning your garden.
The story is told that the original Ashley River Angel was found in the Ashley River in Charleston, SC. With broken wings, and a broken arm-it was decided to keep her just the way she was! She was an original 1864 marble statue.
Standing at almost 3ft in height, she has been a ‘best-seller’ for a number of years. She is beautiful featured on one of our square fluted pedestals.
Each piece takes on weeks-long moldmaking process, and then cast the reproduction from an extremely fine cast-stone aggregate that is strong, weather resistant, and capable of capturing the finest and most minute details. Made to last for centuries. Handmade in North Carolina. Family Owned Business.
“Our Company was founded on an abiding love of the garden antiques that have graced American and European estates for centuries as well as the exemplary craftsmanship that has allowed them to stand the test of time. In 1992, we became one of the first companies to create historical reproductions in composition cast stone, and we did so with an unerring commitment to the casting techniques and hand finishes that would make each replica nearly indistinguishable from the original.
Our thoughtfully curated collection of singular pieces isn’t the only thing that makes us unique; our work exemplifies a level of craftsmanship and artistry that is rare in the industry. We’ve spent years mastering the time-honored Old World techniques that enable us to create stunningly realistic cast stone reproductions. But we’re also committed to evaluating and perfecting new technologies that can turn today’s contemporary pieces into a future generation’s beloved antiques.”
