Made of Chinese northern elmwood (yumu), this smooth block of wood was once used by a well-to-do woman as a headrest. The soft curve and height of the block not only supported her head and neck at rest, it also helped to preserve her intricate hairstyle. The headrest is shaped to resemble a low waisted kang table and simply carved with a graphic scrollwork design. Rustic and conversation-sparking, the headrest displays well on a bookcase, desk or side table.
