Architectural Fragments on Lucite

Yesterday I stopped in an antique store here in Dallas and found

this little booth with this gold architectural fragment

attached to a clear lucite base.

The price is $345.00

They are gorgeous and expensive.

I wished I had my camera with me,

but I only had my iphone.

They appear to be a wood or a wood composite.

Below is a lamp made of a wooden urn placed on a lucite base.

Notice the bust on the lower left side.

Here is another putti that is the opposite of the one above.

I love the juxtaposition of the old world wood carved putti

placed upon a modern day lucite base.

These would work well in a traditionally decorated home

or in a modern home.

Now, if I only had $345.00

So, I am wondering if I had the materials

if I could make these myself?

  1. I love these! I do think you could replicate this look. I would start with a doll body and apply layers and layers of papier mache. I am looking forward to what you create.

  2. Those are adorable!!! A bit price for me. I'll be anxious to see if you come up with your own! So glad you enjoyed our bluebirds! It's been such a treat having them in the yard!

  3. Love the look! I have some glass risers I bought from Wisteria.com that I've used to elevate some items with.

  4. That would be a window shop item for me too! I am hard pressed to spend $345.00 on anything! I am a very fickle decorator, I need cheap items that I don't feel bad about tucking away for a bit. I am interested to see what your "Hmmm" turns into though...

  5. Aaaahhh, these are absolutely gorgeous! But I can understand the price point since just the thick lucite slab alone costs so much already! If you DIY it Patty, I would be so blwon-away for sure, go for it!

  6. Patty, The price is a little steep for me but I think these could be a DIY. You can buy a Lucite base and rod at a lamp shop and make your own.
