Millais’ Silver Pillar

After the previous posts about repeated use of objects in Pre-Raphaelite art (Rossetti and His Baubles and Hair Adornment in Rossetti Paintings),  I have taken to scouring images for props used repeatedly.  One of which is this silver ornament or pillar I’ve seen in both The Bridesmaid and Mariana by Sir John Everett Millais:

In The Bridesmaid, the pillar sits in the forefront of the painting:

In Mariana, the pillar is a bit harder to find.  It sits in the right hand area, on a table against the wall:
