Jasper or Red Marble Egyptian Empire Style Obelisk
Our fine Grand Tour obelisk in the French Empire Revival is carved from jasper stone or species of marble. It measures 29 inches tall and 4 3/8 inches square. Crafted in two sections with the upper portion resting upon four patinated turtle figures mounted to the base. Apparently unsigned, as to be expected with nineteenth century objects created for the Grand Tour market. In good condition. There are scratches and a few small losses and wear where the obelisk meets the turtles.
