This elegant antique pedestal was crafted in northern France, circa 1870. Round in shape and made of walnut, the heavily carved column stands on four paw feet over a turned stem decorated with foliage and vine embellished with Bacchus head sculpture. The octagonal top surface could accommodate a bust, a large vase, or any decorative porcelain “Piece de Forme”. The pedestal is in excellent condition with a rich fruit wood patina. Measures: 20” W x 20” D x 37.5” H.
