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.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
