Stephen how big is the box? Also how tall is the finial? This is just my opinion and how I would approach it. If the box is say 3" high and 4" across I would make the finial probably no more the 2" to 2 1/2" tall and a little more delicate. Cindy Drozda says you don't want the finial to over power your box. Just some thoughts.
