This is a finely carved "Buddhist Prayer Wheel" style toggle, full of ruyi on front and back. This is exquisitely reticulated. The boxwood has developed a fine patina. The stand was made in Beijing by a well-known contemporary carver. But this piece can equally be used as a toggle. From its patina, it clearly has been.
