    Finial

    The decorative handle or knob on the cover of a vase, teapot, coffeepot or similar. Finials appear in a wide range of decorative forms including animals, flowers, fruits, simple shapes such as a ball, and even in the style of a seated female figure wearing a shawl, which is known as the ‘widow’ finial.
