Two large stone blocks that once decorated a building, are carved with depictions of cornucopia overflowing with fruit.

These pieces came from a mansion on the Old West End of Toledo and was acquired by Richard Boers, Director of the Dept. of Natural Resources, City of Toledo. It is possible they were part of the donation from Mrs. E. Benjamin Gillett in 1980, along with the "Boat Fountain", item #2061.
