Vintage old italian alabaster pedestal stand. We think this pillar is 1940s vintage and was probably brought back from Italy after the war.
It stands 25 inches high and is 8 1/2 inches across the top and 12" across the pillar base.
It is in shabby condition and has a large section broken off of the pedestal base (shown in the 4th photo) as well as some other minor chipping and wear.
There is a heavy iron rod through the center of the column to hold the different pieces of alabaster together.
