French Neoclassical Painted Plaster Pedestals, 1940s

$2,250per set


A very decorative pair of French pedestals made of painted and gilded plaster, circa 1940s. The style mixes neoclassical, Second Empire and Louis XVI. The pedestals are painted in yellow-green tones with gilded motifs of urns, arabesques and birds. The ionic style tops have scrolls and palmette decor. The pedestal shape is called a gaine in French, meaning a quadrangular pillar diminishing towards the plinth base.
