U.S. Capitol Building “Corn Cob” Candlesticks (Pair)

By iconsDC

$ 48.00

These handsome candlesticks - detailed replicas of the original "corn-cob capital" columns in the vestibule outside the original Supreme Court Chamber in the U.S. Capitol - add gravitas to any décor. They are crafted from marble from the original East Front steps of the Capitol Building during the 1995 renovations. The columns represent a uniquely American architectural element and are among the few architectural features that survived Britain’s 1814 burning of the Capitol.

Dimensions: 8"
