This listing is for an unusual antique French Pietra Dura hard stone inlaid on marble obelisk from the Grand Tour era. This nice obelisk is made of black marble and features a panel with Pietra Dura hard stone inlay decoration with beautiful coloration in the stones.
Dimensions: 10 5/8" high with the square base measuring 3 5/8" in diameter. Weights 2.6 pounds.
Condition: This gorgeous obelisk is in excellent Estate condition with only some small nicks in the marble as expected with items of this age. The flaws are minor no-harm nicks around the bottom edges otherwise the piece is in excellent Estate condition. The inlaid stone decoration is in excellent condition with no noted flaws.
We actually have a matched pair of these lovely obelisk, however, this listing is for one only with the second one available at the same price if you wish to display as a pair. Please note that the second one is also in very good to excellent Estate condition similar in wear as the one listed above, however, the obelisk is bolted and the tower section is slightly loose and needs to be tightened which we will leave to the new owner.
