A set of four stunning reclaimed gold pilasters that were originally used in a cathedral. We believe they are made from limewood and have been finely made with each column having fluted detail and decorative top sections. Each column has a base, two that are similar to the column tops and two that are deeper. Two bases have fixing pins for securing to the columns and two columns have pins for fixing to the base. We believe the columns were set up in a square with the deeper bases placed at the back paired with the columns with stay bars attached, while the other columns and bases were situated at the front. The stay bars are raised to attach to the brackets on the other columns. The bars could be easily unscrewed if not needed or we could make extra bars for an extra cost, if required, as the columns may have had further bars to secure the columns together. Please contact us for details and a quote. Please note the brackets are attached to the columns and not removeable unless cut. The columns were perhaps used to frame a decorative item but they could now be used for a number of diy projects.
The columns have been painted in a rich gold but there are some losses to the paint, slight bubbling and some scratches and marks revealing the undercoat. The marks and scratches add character and they have great appearance. The top of one column has a chip and there are some further knocks and chips. The brackets and fixing bars have some tarnish and surface rust. Please see pictures for condition details. The columns are very beautiful decorative items that could be ideal for many projects. The columns are beautifully made, have a lovely look and would make a fantastic feature in a home or business.
Height of columns 190cm (excluding pins)
Base height 18cm (excluding pins)
