Finial

Definition: Finial


A finial is a decorative ornament used to emphasize the top of an architectural structure or a piece of furniture. Finials are often seen on the tops of bed posts and clocks, and on the ends of curtain rods. They're also used to fasten lamp shades to bases, and are an easy solution for perking up a plain-vanilla lamp. You see them topping Christmas trees during the holidays and flagpoles year round, and they even function as lightning rods on rooftops.

I don't know if this would be considered the same thing, but years ago, we had a wrought iron hand rail with something like this attached to it. My Mom was coming down the steps, tripped and fell and her arm landed right on top of the ornament. Once it stuck in, with her falling motion and everything going on it maaged to tear all the way down her arm, causing some major damage. So be careful is you have one of those things, guys, lol.
