Luxury Design, Past & Present
Offered is a Pair of Monumental Carved Italian Marble Lamps. Hand carved in Italy from solid marble, they display with awesome, almost imposing presence. They are carved in the manner of ancient Greek Corinthian columns, with ornate capitols.
They are in excellent condition, with some spots and coloration expected with marble and age/use. There is one petal that is glued on (see last photo). The petal is in the back, under the capital, so is not intrusive. It appears to have been glued on a number of years ago, and it's likely the glue line could be covered if desired. They have been restored, with all of the original hardware replaced with new, of the highest quality available nickel over solid brass. All of the wiring is new, as well. New white felt has also been applied to the bottoms.
They measure 42"H overall, 26-1/4"H to the top of the marble, and about 7" Square at the base. Each weighs about 22 pounds.
These tall lamps date to the mid 20th century.
