This regal hardwood stand is beautifully and deeply carved with cherry or plum blossoms, with intertwined branches, all made from one piece of Blackwood. It is quite heavy which most likely held a large carving of jade or stone. It has an inset on the top which took the shape of the original object, but would not be difficult to identify a three-dimensional object would serve as a foundation for a large piece of prized artwork that would compliment this open framework. 

Vintage Condition: Exceptional with great detailing and finish. “As is”, and retains the original craft/workmanship. Any discoloration, chipping/cracking, surface wear or structural damage noted. 

NOTE: Today, the art of wood carving is one of the most sought after antiques from China.
