200 year plus figural oak carved European jewel stand. A very rare, highly sought, museum quality artifact. We have used it for an occasional low table for decades. Obviously, the carvings were done with hand tools and the figures are graciously stylized.
Well cared for, the piece is in excellent condition with original finish (see all photos). It is possible this was an element in a royal or high-born household, castle style, which was used as a stand for a lady's large jewel chest. We were once asked the favor of a museum donation at a time when we did not feel we could part with it. One of our multi-starred grand pieces from our years of collecting, which we are now dispersing for our retirement.The item "Antique Continental Carved Lion Gargoyles Oak Jewelry Box Stand" is in sale since Wednesday, March 2, 2016.
