Exquisitely crafted stands like this are now very rare. The top is connected to the body by a moulded waist. Each side has a relief carved motif of a cloud symbolising a wish for good fortune in your life. The legs are stepped in with a scroll motif at the border. This motif is repeated a the foot of the stand. Low humpback stretchers encircling the legs add strength and a feeling the stand is grounded at the base.
This is a stand that deserves a place of prominence where it will be seen on entry to the room displaying a vase of bright seasonal flowers.
