I am looking for a couple of pedestals (or full column sets) for an Ansonia slate clock. They look like either a brass or bronze casting. Two of the pedestals had several cracks.

The pedestal is 1-1/2" diameter at the base, about 7/8" high, and fits a column with a 3/4" ID. The total column length is about 7-3/16"

Thanks, Bill

Can close this request. I was able to make “passable” repairs to the broken pedestals by turning a jig to keep the cracks closed, then soldering small strips of brass sheet across the cracks, then strengthening with a steel epoxy. Any exterior gaps were filled and the parts painted.
