    This is an absolutely beautifuly made item. It does just what we want it to do (hold back roses from front path). The twisted cross bars are a lovely design feature. It’s so sturdy, and has gone into the ground so well, I have been holding on to it to steady myself when taking off muddy boots. Love it and am planning on a few more for the back garden.

    Very pleased with this obelisk: well-crafted and elegant, with a very solid look and feel.

    This is the second one I have purchased from this seller, they are really well made and look really stunning in the garden I have had really nice comments from passers by and there is nothing growing up them yet . I would highly recommend

    A gift for my husband at Christmas. Caused much confusion whilst playing the obligatory " can you guess what it is before you open it. game"
    Caused even more confusion once he'd opened it.😂. His best guess was " something to push into the ground to tie your dog to at the park"😄🤔.
    However once the penny dropped he was over the moon.
    A great quality , fun and unusual gift that will get plenty of use once the summer comes. Thank so much.

    I could probably do with a slightly wider version but very happy with this. Solidly made and currently helping to hold up an unruly and overgrown Himalayan Honeysuckle. Looks beautiful and I am hoping to order more.

    Smithandpulse is an excellent ETSY store. I bought the Handcrafted Bespoke Garden Obelisks
    200 cm. These have a base of approx. 40cm square and taper to approx. 20cm square at the top. The middle rung has been twisted to a pleasing decorative finish. The obelisk is made out of square steel tube with good solid welds that have been professionally ground down to a nice smooth finish. They are perfectly weighted so they will not blow over in a strong wind but are not too heavy to move into place. I will be spray painting mine matt black but I did consider letting them weather to a pleasing rust finish. The square finials on the top of each corner provide a clean minimalistic look. The tubing was smaller than I was expecting from the photo's on the website but that was a welcome surprise.

    Absolutely gorgeous, sturdy and perfect obelisks! I'm thrilled to bits with them. They will weather well and the design is elegant and unusual. I love that different heights are offered - I'd been trying to find some in garden centres but they were all too small. They are also a very competitive price for beautiful, well made, long lasting products. The seller communicated well and the obelisks were packed safely. I will be back for more! thank you very much. Shall see if I can post a photo once I've got sweet peas growing up them :-)
