Pair of Vintage French Lucite Obelisks France circa 1950

A pair of vintage French Lucite obelisks from France circa 1950. The timeless shape of an obelisk is recognizable the world over since first appearing in ancient Egypt. These mid-century modern period obelisks are each made from two separate sections of cast Lucite (known as Perspex in England and on the continent of Europe) chosen for the transparent quality of the material. The lower and upper sections are joined by a recessed band of patinated brass and this dark band between the sections adds an element of mystery and intrigue to the appearance of the obelisks.
