This is pair of zitan stands, with burl inlay. They were used by the scholar or artist to put their brushes and inkstones on while writing or painting. The condition is excellent. The burl has a few minor cracks due to age. The zitan is beautifully patinated. The carving of the wood is firm but delicate. Each stand is approximately 18.5 cm long x 10.5cm high
