Late 19thC Chinese Marble-Topped Carved Hardwood Urn Stand
A fine late 19thC Chinese hardwood stand in very good condition, with lobed and rouge-veined inset marble top, hardwood frame with beaded serpentine edge, over a concave frieze, elaborate fret-cut and carved apron modelled with hawthorn? leaves, carved and moulded cabriole legs with dragon's face hips and terminating in ball & claw feet, united by cock-pen stretchers, this exceptional urn stand will impress in the most elegant of period-furnished homes, fully-deserving of the admiring attention it will undoubtedly attract.
O/All Width of Top 42.5cm x Depth 42.5cm (16.75" x 16.75") & Height 45.5cm (18")
This piece probably dates from around 1890, so you may expect the mature character & patina of age together with wear & tear commensurate with normal use, including some loose but secure joints between stretchers & legs and the occasional very minor loss to the carving but, otherwise, it's in very good, clean & sound condition, ready to use in your home.
