Pair of 19th century French Empire mahogany bronze eagle heads pedestals/stands
Standing on a mahogany triform base with gilt bronze lion paw feet, three slender and tapering legs each topped with a gilt-bronze winged eagles’ head and ending in a bronze pair of human feet hold the mahogany top which bears a green mottled marble plate surrounded by a pearl frieze. Gilt bronze mounts in shape of neoclassical floral vignettes and laurel wreaths embellish the apron and the base. A mahogany and gilt bronze tazza with a baluster shaped foot is placed in the center of the base between the three legs to serve as a stretcher.
The opulent bronze mounts display a fine casting and chiseling, the eagles’ heads are of a remarkably vivid expression. A rare and beautiful pair of pedestals perfect for official and representative rooms.
