This spectacular pair of marble and doré bronze pedestals is hewn from the finest French "Partridge eye" rouge griotte marble from the Languedoc region. Formed as Corinthian columns, these neoclassical pedestals are complete with intricate bronze doré capitals and acanthus and olive leaf bands around the base. Named for the griotte cherry for its deep, rich color, Red Griotte was the favorite marble for Royal apartments in the 18th century, and was used to create the fireplace mantel in the office of Louis XIV in Versailles. This particular type is called "Partridge eye" due to its inclusion of goniatites (small fossilized shells) full of white calcite. Elegant in their elaborate detail, these pedestals convey a sense of stately luxury, and add an air of drama and sophistication to any setting.

Circa 1880

Base: 10 ½" square
47 7/16" high
