Pair of Enormous Vintage French Aged Metal Neoclassical Obelisks, France circa 1950

These huge vintage French obelisks from France circa 1950 stand an impressive 9'3" high and are completely finished on all four sides in order to be used as pieces of sculpture both inside and outdoors. The patinated metal surface has oxidized giving these architecturally inspired objects a beautifully warm appearance. Each of the obelisks stand upon a square base with molding details with each of the four sides highlighted by a square raised molding. The actual obelisks are raised upon four spheres set at each corner and this gives their tapered shape a sense of elegance because of their elongated appearance. Obelisks became famous in ancient Egypt where they were often decorated and raised in central plazas to be admired from any direction. The exceptional scale of these obelisks ensure their potent visual impact.
