This is a genuine mid-Qing flower holder. The wood has been carved to resemble the trunk of a small tree, it has little "knobs" and branches throughout. The branches come out naturally from the trunk and then re-join it. This item was used as a flower holder to put on an official's desk or maybe that of his concubine. It is in excellent condition. H. is 13 cm, Diameter at the top is 5 cm, at the bottom it is 7 cm. On base a modest repair can be seen. It is a very nice repair job.
