Pair of Carved, Painted Wood Columns from India
Distinctive set of teak wood columns from Gujarat, India, circa 1950, with original green paint and hand-carved, ribboned flutes and Corinthian capitals. The column bases, which have a small footprint, are made of sandstone and have weathered, yet visible, decorative floral impressions. Note that there are subtle differences in the color and carvings of the two pillars (see photographs), which adds interest and speaks to the authenticity of the pair.
