Pair of Vintage Italian Carved Empire Grand Tour Marble Obelisks on Square Bases
This elegant pair of Grand Tour specimen obelisks was crafted in Italy, circa 1960. Each colorful, vintage piece is raised on a black stepped square base and features exquisite craftsmanship with geometric decor. The Italian obelisks are topped with a carved, tapered and pointed stem. Both tall, sturdy pieces are in excellent condition with a rich finish.
