This exceptionally beautiful stand is so intricately carved with the richest
patina. Originally designed to hold the Quran, these were also made in the late
19th century for the colonial market as superb magazine, book or picture
This beautiful stand was made in the Punjab or Kashmir region of India during
the late 19th century from intricately carved wood (likely Sheesham).
These types of stands were also imported and retailed by Liberty & Co in the
late 19th Century as illustrated in their 1890s catalogues. The carving on this
example is particularly fine.
