Pair of large Kauri pine pedestals. Item 3940.
This impressive pair of fluted Kauri pine pedestals stand 1.04m high and have a diameter at the base of 585mm. I know nothing about their history other than under the top layer of paint were several other layers and evidence of gilding. There is also an interesting shelf that is able to be pulled out from under the top on both pieces. The central column is made of two pieces of kauri glued together, then turned and fluted. They would have been made to support something large as they are very heavy themselves-could they have been made for a large home, a church or even an upmarket shop? The tops have been replaced some time ago and they have been recently repolished. C1880.
