Pietra Dura Pair
since the 16th century Rome and Florence have been well known for the revival of this craft. Many luxurious objects were purchased as grand tour souvenirs well into the 20th century.
Our spectacular and large, 22 inch tall, pair of black marble obelisks are inlaid with many types of marble and semi-precious stones. They date to the last quarter of the 19th century.
