This is a monumental Neo Classical style pair of patinated Atlas figures as columns, dating from the last quarter of the 20th century.
The columns depict classical bearded figures dressed in togos and sashes. They are supporting the capitals of the columns above their heads and they feature Bacchanalian cherubs and grapes with a pair of angels to each side, while standing on decorative bases which feature putti and ornamentation in high relief.
There is no mistaking the fine quality and charming design of these columns, which are going to make a superb addition to any entrance.
This high quality hot cast solid bronze was produced using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method.
In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.
