This 18th-century display stand was carved from a single block of white marble to resemble an open scroll turned upside down. The elegant form needs little decoration - the sides alone are etched with a pattern of swirling clouds, symbols of harmony and the celestial realm. A low stand such as this would have been placed upon a table as a display mount for a precious object or lingbi stone. Exemplifying the restraint of Ming-dynasty design, this stand would have undoubtedly appealed to esoteric tastes and likely took pride of place in the scholars' studio.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
