Crafted in France in the twentieth century and drawing upon earlier Royal periods and styles of French history, these impressive, dignified and regal pieces are a pair of gilt-bronze mounted malachite pedestals, made in a refined Neoclassical style.
Featuring the ever-effective and instantly recognisable combination of ormolu and malachite, a favourite of many a period of antique design, such as Empire-style France and Tsarist Russia, they feature a distilled, uncomplicated design, that embodies a sense of grandeur and royalty while allowing the rich and beautiful materials used to sing out. As such, they bring an antique style and magnificent to modern interior design and decor.
