Late 18th to Early 19th century column base. It was used to support figured or architecture into the grand and imposing surroundings of a courtyard during Qing dynasty. Flanking the entryway with its protective presence. Carved from one whole piece of gray marble stone, the column is composed of two sections: a drum-shaped top intricately patterned in low relief and a tiered architectural bottom portions.
It’s a very rare size for column base. Likely was for much larger structure building.
Unfortunately, one of the bottom corner was broken as we shown in the pictures. Which we reflected on the price for the imperfection. Though it still remained one of the most astonishing stone base piece we have both in its historical purpose, size and carving. One of a kind.
