Rare Pair of Grand Tour 19th C. Serpentine Marble Obelisks after Cleopatra's Needle

 

Rare to find a pair, and even rarer to find them decorated with Egyptian Hieroglyphics. Both have sustained damage, one has an old glued break, the other a chip where the plinth joins the base. Other chips and scratches. Each stands 36.5 cm tall. The heiroglyphs differ on each obelisk, and are engraved on one face.
