Architectural Salvage From India, Pilaster Corinthian Half Plinth Base, Detailed Wood Carving, Indoor Outdoor Decor, Plant Or Candle Stand

  • 7800

Beautiful vintage hand carved corinthian base once served as the foundation of a column in an Indian home. This wood block is a half cut piece so it is ornamental in the front and side and the backside is flat. It was formerly used in a home where it was flush against a wall.

The age of this unique piece is at least 50 and up to 100 years old.

The hand carved wood is indoor/outdoor suitable. Perfect as an objet, as a candle holder, plant stand or home decor object on a shelf or credenza.

We found this ornamental wood plinth on a trip to the Indian desert state of Rajasthan where I work with people who specialize in recovering visually and historically interesting elements from homes and buildings that are torn down. These are actual recovered wood pieces from old homes. Each piece is a one of a kind treasure with it's own story to tell.

All of the architectural salvage pieces have been weathered by the elements and from regular home use. Cracks and crags in the wood, chipped & varied color paint are all typical and part of the one of a kind charm in these pieces. If there are any cracks that affect the stability of the item and would prevent it from being a base for a plant or candle I'll point it out in the listing. This piece has some raw crags and cut outs, but it's still strong and stable.

You'll see that I take photos from all 4 angles as well as top and bottom so you can get a solid idea as to the detailing and condition of the wood.

Most of the recovered wood comes from Rajasthan & Gujarat.
The wood used varies and may be seesham, teak or mango.
