|Hanuman, the heroic white monkey from the Indian epic The Ramayana, perches on this early 19th century drape holder from the Javanese city of Solo in Indonesia. The gracefully shaped hand carved teak hanger has a hole through the top of the hook so it can be suspended or affixed to a wall to display collectible textiles or hold back drapes. Fabric can be draped so that Hanuman faces front or to the side. The hanger is in very good condition with expected wear; the Hanuman figure has a small chip on his upper lip. Dimensions: height 12 ¾” (32 cm), width 5 ½” (14 cm), depth 1 ¾” (4 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM|
