SOLD OUT - Hand Carved Wood Plinth / Base Architectural Salvage From India (NG622_16)

  • 11000

SOLD. Beautiful vintage hand carved wood plinth once served as the base of a column in an Indian home. The wood block features ornamental elements that were beautifully hand chiseled by a craftsmen. The original coloration mixed with the desert sun weathered wood has faded into a beautiful patina. The age is at least 50 years old.

This is indoor/outdoor suitable. Perfect as an objet or for candles, place a sundial on it or serves as a stand for a garden pot.

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.

This is a one of a kind piece and has some beautiful detailing with floral ornamental touches. There is a very interesting cut out running through the wood at the bottom which matches the grain line of the wood. It's a very sturdy piece and the hole does not affect the strength of the base. You'll see on one of the pictures that I show all 4 sides, so you can get a better idea as to the detailing and condition of the wood.
