Greetings: This is for AmberRose. This is what I purchased when I returned the 11 Le Verre Francais lamps (posted yesterday). Tongeren is the oldest city in Belgium (it was actually a walled Roman city once upon a time). There is a weekly (mostly outdoor) antique market (around the old Roman wall) every Sunday, starting at 3:00 - 4:00 AM. Flashlights are required for early viewing. This pair of solid marble and bronze pedestals were on the sidewalk when I arrived. They were not cheap and I left a small deposit - I needed to go back to Germany to pick up my 11 lamps - return them to the Belgian antique dealer - and return to Tongeren to complete my pedestal purchase. The pedestals are 50" x 14" and weigh a Godzillion pounds. I was told that they came from a remodeled embassy in Northern France. The pictures, in no way, do them justice. Regards.
