Pair of marble and scagliola pedestals



Pair of marble and scagliola pedestals

Late 19th century (circa 1880). White marble tops sit above variated blue scagliola columns upon ebonised wooden plinths.

The simulated marble column bodies are of a particularly striking colour. The white marble caps with some minor shading wear commensurate with age and use.

Scagliola being a decorative Italian technique where a composite stucco body is created and coloured using bonded plaster. This can be shaped and polished to simulate expensive marble. A highly effective and decorative substitute for costly marble.
