LARGE CHINESE ANTIQUE ZITAN WOOD CARVED STAND - VASE /CENSER, 17TH CENTURY, MINGItem: Large Chinese Zitan Wood Stand.
Description: Very large and heavy (1.3kg!) Chinese stand for a vase or perhaps a censer. Date-wise this is late Ming or Early Qing, somewhere between c1630 and 1730. The zitan (??) is of the red sandalwood variety (Pterocarpus santalinus) which was extremely popular in China, particularly from the 18th century onward, and was highly prized. The stand is carved from a single piece, containing some burl which gives it an unusual grain. The patina is a very deep reddish-brown. A rare example.
Measurements: Diameter 255mm (10"). Accommodating a vase with 193mm base max.
Condition Report: Good condition. There is a small loss to edge rim, and the small pad feet probably added in the 19thC to level the stand which has a slight undulation.
