Pair of Italian Grand Tour Specimen Two-Piece Carved Variegated Marble Obelisks
These elegant and monumental Grand Tour marble obelisks were crafted in Italy, circa 1960. Each colorful, vintage obelisk stands on a separate square base and features a carved and tapered marble stem embellished with geometric decor. Both heavy pieces are in excellent condition with a rich patinated finish in the brown and beige palette. Place these tall specimen obelisks on a console or a mantel for an impressive, stately look. Each piece weighs 110 pounds! Egyptian obelisk statues became popular in France during the Empire period due to the exploration and conquest of Egypt by Napoleon during the 19th century.
