Antique Italian Alabaster Pedestal with Gilt Bronze Mounts, circa 1890

About

Antique Italian alabaster column pedestal with etched gilt bronze collars, circa 1890. This Classical style pedestal column is taken from examples seen in the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome. Having a removable display top the slender tapered column stands upon a square plinth base made from slabs of alabaster. Please enlarge the photographs to see the details that give this elegant artifact of grand Italian decoration its decided appeal. The gilt bronze collars seen beneath the top and above the base that encircle the column all have an etched design around the entire perimeter in order for this column pedestal to be seen from every direction with equal beauty. The passage of time is evident in this piece as it has cracks and a missing bit at the base customary for antique alabaster.
