Large and imposing, this beautifully carved stand is 60cm square at the base and the whole comes in at 92cms high

With all manner of mythical creatures writhing around, this wonderful piece is otherworldly and fantastical. It is from 19th Century Burma and likely depicts the Nagas and Garuda from Hindu mythology.

The carving is impressive, we are particularly blown away by the base and head; these beautifully formed bowls, covered in a delicate tracery of leaves and flowers, have been carved, pierced and hollowed from large single pieces of inch thick mahogany to beautiful effect. The central pillar is formed from four identical columns, each comprising a serpent intertwined with foliage, over a Foo Dog or Chinthe at the base and a bird at the throat. Each columns is again carved from one piece of Mahogany. The zoomorphic feet are each carved separately to the base.

The base has suffered a loss, missing one of the "skirts" that drop to the floor from the base, and two of the birds have lost the tips of their tails. These are minor issues however, carvings of this age and detail are more often covered in chips and losses.

ROCHE COWARD ANTIQUES

By Appointment
Sheffield

WWW.ROCHECOWARDANTIQUES.COM

We are Rebecca Roche and Alex Coward.

Our background is in the visual arts, and we value craftsmanship and skill in all things.  This love for quality and beauty, and the scarcity of it in so much of modern manufacturing, has led us to this venture: A Bohemian boutique offering rare, unusual antiques, art pieces and vintage items for the home and garden.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

Our style is not for the faint hearted!

We lean towards the highly decorative.  If you don't immediately recoil at the prospect of having a huge polychrome carved Balinese temple door in your living room you are in the right place.  We don't do beige or magnolia and we may not be the landlords go to choice, but why choose neutrals when you can have Turquoise or Gold?

GILTY PLEASURES

We like painted things, woven things, carved things and gilded things.  If it is unique and beautiful, if the hand of the artist is present, we like it.  We love great design, elegant lines, bold colour. And gilded things.

We source items from across the ages, from 18th Century Asia to 20th Century Europe.  We want to help you create bespoke interiors, to mix and match; to provide an eclectic, rich, opulent and exotic living environment.
