Pair of Decorative Painted Faux Marble Plaster Plinths/Pedestals, circa 1890

About

The very decorative columns, in composition plaster with wooden inner frames and well painted to imitate marble, the wholes having circular tops with moulded edges, on octagonal wood bases, and surviving from the last quarter of the 19th century. The columns are in fair to good overall order, they have suffered knocks and scuffing and overall they remains in fairly good decorative condition, pleasing that they have not been restored in any way. There are nibbled losses to the top edgings and some fissures though nothing that has affected their stability. Please refer to the photographs for a full visual reference. These types of plinths would be best utilised for busts, urns and statuary, being particularly suited to neoclassical pieces, and metallic or stoneware items. Shades of Sir John Soane, the Grand Tour and all that is imposing and decidedly important.
