Holidays with Obelisks

I can’t think of a present I would rather get than an obelisk! A single beautiful obelisk, a handsome pair, or maybe two that are mismatched but go together – any or all would be just fine!

What could be nicer than a festive table set with an obelisk!

A mantel always cries out to be decorated, and obelisks naturally fit there to further frame a painting or mirror, and to add height among other decorative objects.

Here a stylish radiator cover serves as a place to display, and what better anchors to the other object than some really interesting obelisks.

A bookshelf has become a place for the books I plan to read, and a place to display treasures! Among the special pieces on this shelf are a pair of antique Italian pietra dura inlaid obelisks. They are small and go anywhere! I’ve also recently added a handsome vintage brass obelisk. It has wonderful patina, and the real weight of brass.

As you might expect, our mantel is topped with obelisks. I have the luxury of changing them periodically!

My favorites at the moment are these fabulous malachite obelisks. They have stature and make a statement.

If perhaps you are at a loss for a very special gift, you will make a big hit with obelisks!
