Green Marble and Gilt Americana Pedestal

$6,500

About

Made for the 1876 Centennial Exhibition, celebrating the founding of America, this pedestal was made by the Italian sculptor Romanetti to display his work "Washington and his Hatchet"; etched and gilded on the side of the pedestal. The whereabouts of the accompanying statue are unknown. Yet, the heavy carving of acanthus leaves, laurels and stars make this pedestal a remarkable and beautiful work that stands alone.
