Pair of large column-form pedestals, Australian, c. 1880

$2,800.00 AUD

Magnificent pair of Australian-made classical pedestals, in cowrie pine, the riffled column with spreading octagonal base and top, framed with egg & dart moulding, a curious slide to one facet of the top.
Circa 1880

104cm high, top & base 52x52cm

Re-finished, with signs of age & minor cosmetic repairs.


Purchased locally, these interesting items were probably from the entrance of a grand house, a public building, or a department store. The small slide-out shelf is a unique feature. They are extremely heavily built, suggesting they may have been for a large marble or bronze statue.
