19th Century Provincial Chinese Display Stand

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The most precious or significant Chinese artworks were generally displayed on beautiful wooden stands. The stands themselves, were works of art but not widely appreciated at the time. Today, collectors recognize them in their own right. The Provincial nature of this item provides a lovely counterpoint to the Fine antiques or curiosities displayed. The complex grain and joinery are perfect for drawing and focusing the eye.
