Title   French antique Gothic marble pedestal

Dimensions

 

Height 86 cm

Width 52 cm

Description

A massive solid French grey marble turned column pedestal. The marble is in three separately carved components consisting of :

a traditional pedestal circular base , a massive turned column centre  and a stepped turned top with rectangular shaped top, all carved from one massive marble piece.

The top has been repaired at some time but could easily be mended properly  or covered with a separate facia slab of marble. Yes this marble has seen some use but still holds its weight well.

This marble pedestal would date from the early to mid 1800's and would have supported a considerable weight , possibly even a marble statue of great importance.

the three sections are: turned base height 17cm , column centre height 53 cm, turned and rectangular top height 15cm . Would be perfect for an outdoor table base on the patio!
