Lovely pair of Italian pietra dura inlaid obelisks. The construction makes them most likely antiques. The design of flowers and insects is set in black marble on one side. The design is so charming you will want to look at them every day! The size makes them perfect for a desk, a console table, or part of a collection of objects. 10 1/2 inches tall.
10 1/2 inches tall. Base 3 1/4 inches square
Very good condition for age (they are likely antiques, given the construction technique). #1: small chips on obelisk edges; some minor chipping on base. #2: Small/minor chips on obelisk; small chips on base. More photos available on request.
