We're pleased to introduce our handmade obelisks, whose classical design and craftsmanship ensure their place as heirlooms for the future. These are meticulously made by hand in our bindery and are ready for immediate shipping. We begin with hand-cut archival bookbinders' boards which are skillfully pieced together and jacketed in stunning hand-marbled paper. The obelisk featured here is clad in a beautiful French marbled paper in shades of slate blue with red, brown and gold veining. This piece has also been studded on one face with bezel-set plaster intaglios, which have been handmade for us in England. Plaster intaglios were popular souvenirs for those lucky enough to embark on a Grand Tour in the 18th and 19th centuries, and are prized by collectors today.  

This listing includes one 15" obelisk jacketed in slate marbled paper. The obelisks shown in the last image are sold separately. We cheerfully accept commissions for obelisks in your preferred paper patterns and invite you to contact us to learn more.
