As well as being large, this stand is also. It was left to me by my Grandpa who was a serious antiques collector. I think it is most likely to be early to mid-20th century from the Art Deco period and so around 80 years old. The wood is adorned with embedded Chinese mother of pearl inlay on the legs, rim and top that shimmers beautifully. This mother of pearl depicts an array of beautiful patterns of vines and leaves, and the top depicts reads and long tailed fish.
The stand has 4 beautiful legs that end in sturdy'ball and claw' feet. Under each foot there is a small centred 7mm hole; It may have had some sort of protective floor inserts at some point. Underneath the top part there is what looks like a maker's mark with the number 28.
Condition wise, it is in very good condition. Please consider that this is a vintage piece and it will not look new - there are tiny imperfections here and there which add to the charactor however there is nothing major. Ne of the legs may be slightly shorter because there is a slight floor wobble, this may also be my slightly uneven floor. Regardless, a few coins under the leg evens this out.
