Dear Asian Art Forum,
I would love to know more about this piece.
I have attached a web link with pictures of what I believe to be an antique Chinese or Japanese beautifully wood carved bird bath & branch stand.
The stand frame appears to to be made of a very knobbly exotic branch wood, pin tacked together to form a cross frame.
The large top bowl is of a very light weight wood which has a lovely carved lily pads, lotus flower stems, kingfisher & frog design.
Lower second tier bowl seems to have bone or ivory insert flower decoration.
Approx size is 28" tall & 19" wide.
I'm really not sure of this items exact
so any information would be much appreciated.
Kind Regards & fingers crossed
Thomas D Clarkson
