Pair of Circa 1920 English Neoclassical Style Painted Pedestals in the manner of Robert Adams. This magnificent pair of pedestals were usually used as ornamental supports for candelabra in order to illuminate a room with no trouble. A vase can also be placed on top of the pedestals to add greater detail to any room. As seen in the Summer Thornton Design page, these pedestals have been featured in the 2013 Lake Forest Show House where their goal was “Combining the beauty of the formal gardens with a quirky glamour of the 1960s to create a space that pays homage to David Alder Architecture in the style of Francis Alder Elkins”. Reputed to be in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. One bottom drawer containing a lead-lined cellarette. Removable tops with painted designs on the surface, bellflowers along the sides, and acanthus leaves on the top corners. The top part weighs approximately 20lbs, the bottom part weighs approximately 85lbs, and the total weight is approximately 115lbs for each one. Both 230 lbs as they are sold as a pair.
