French 19th Century Belle Époque Period Onyx And Ormolu Pedestals
Item # 6127
An exceptional pair of French 19th century Belle Époque period onyx and ormolu mounted pedestals. Each is raised by a striking square base below a circular support decorated with impressive large finely chased ormolu acanthus leaves. The circular column is wonderfully embellished with two striking and richly chased ormolu cabochon mounts with a smooth center, a satin and burnished finish and a striking hammered pattern. Above is the square top that swivels on all its original hardware. Spectacular veins throughout.
