This is an exquisite stand of hand water-leafed gold leaf that is matched to a magnificent Japanese stone mosaic of bird and flowers. The style of the scene emphasizes simplicity, and with the wonderful matching of the stones, this piece typifies its style of craftsmanship, especially as practiced during the Great Revival in the late 19th century. The stand is obviously Rococo, with French scrolls and a plethora of carved elements. Of its type, it's a good as it gets.

Height: 30 in. Width: 26 in. Depth: 20 in.
