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. There is 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 a different top and use the existing piece as a base under the dolphin riser. 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 base (without its top) measures 15.75" long x 11.63" wide x 26" high). Overall measurements listed below.
France, CA 1900.
