French Carved Limestone Dolphin Side Table or Table Base
We originally had a pair of these but have since sold one. Hand-carved from French limestone and dating to around 1890-1910, the carving is marvelous and the entwined dolphin motif classically French. Nicely weathered, the dolphin heads have bits of moss and greening. Each has a separate original limestone piece (21 3/8" long x 17.5" wide x 1.75" thick) that can be used either as a tabletop or as a base for the dolphin riser. Beautiful indoors or out, you may choose to add different tops and use the existing pieces as bases under the dolphin risers. It can be used as an end table in the garden or as a base for a round stone top to make a dining table. The dolphin bases (without their tops) measure 15.75" long x 11.63" wide x 26" high). Overall measurements listed below.
