Small Wood Antique Plinth With Nice Patina

  • $78.00


Beautiful vintage hand carved wood plinth that is 50 - 100 years old once served as the base of a column in an Indian building. Will make a wonderful base for a sundial. 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.

This piece has a worn deep color patina in it mixed with cracks and crags making it a very naturalistic wood base.  

Measures 7 1/2". 8 5/8" x 6" ht
Top area measures 6" diameter

Since the sundial is being placed on a repurposed the base, the sundial will simply rest on the base and not attach like our other stands. If you have a Rome sundial with a bracket in the center of the dial, the hole in the center of the base will allow the bracket to rest inside.

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. 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.
