Handsome pair of vintage lapis lazuli obelisks. The lapis is a beautiful color blue with white veining. Overall, the style is neoclassical with a particularly interesting detail where the obelisk meets the base. 21 3/4 inches tall.
21.75 inches tall. Base 4.5 inches square
a) 7.2 lbs. b) 7.4 lbs
Overall the condition is very good and consistent with vintage obelisks. Obelisk A has a minor chip to the tip, and several tiny chips to the underside of the base. Obelisk B has one corner of the base repaired where a 1 inch by 1/2 inch piece separated from the base along a naturally occuring fracture line. There is a small infill repair, 3/4 x 1/4 inches, on the face of one side of the obelisk near the edge. And there is one chip on one edge of the obelisk about 3 inches below the top.
