Antique Chinese Wood Display Stand Lantern Fruit

Wonderful, hand-carved WOOD STYLIZED CHINESE LANTERN FRUIT STAND; at least we believe that is what this shape represents. It may, of course, be free-form or some other organic item. In any case, it is a beautifully crafted work of art, with intentional "natural-colored" grooves at the stem end and pointed end of the form. Each of the four feet is different from the others, and perhaps were formed from the natural curves of the piece of wood -- they are not attached feet, and are part of the single piece of wood used for this piece.

It measures about 4" long, 2-3/4" at the widest area, 1-1/2" tall.

The considerable wear to the piece both on the base and the recessed platform, indicate there is quite a bit of age to the piece, perhaps from the 19th Century, although we do not guarantee age. A striking item for the collector or retailer. $8 US Shipping.
