A PAIR OF DARK BROWN MARBLE COLUMNS
156cm. high, 5ft. 1 ¼ in.
These elegant columns are in good conserved condition with no relevant breaks or cracks. They are as expected minor chips and losses to edges. Column A with a small repair to bottom lip of base. Column B with small loss to bottom lip and all repairs top edges. Marks scratches and minor losses consistent with age and use. The limestone plinths are probably associated but are a very good fit. They have minor old marks and scratches consistent with age and use, column B with small loss to back corner, column a with losses to both back corners and another larger chip to the right handside and another chip to front. Back of limestone bases is intentionally cut as square in order to be close to the wall. Please note the correct measurements for these are: height of each column (including the base) is 156cm. The diameter of each column is 23cm.
Nice form and of interesting colour. Ready to be placed.
