Huge stand for a centerpiece, this 17" tall and 10" wide carving once held an oval bowl, likely Bohemian or French wheel-engraved clear glass. So often those have been broken somewhere in time. It is the case with this one. Still, surely a bowl can be found to fit the space. I have not yet tried. Will add the measurements to make it easier and we'll start to look for one, meantime. Size alone made it impossible to pass by. Measurements noted on the photos.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type, this one is remarkable anatomically, and the goat figure is a full 8 3/4" longest, 5" tall to shoulder. That impossibly perfect tail and beard, those legs - no loss. Part of one ear has been chipped away, however. The other chip is larger - one of the up-arching arm/branches which would nest the missing bowl. Those are each visible and "x" marked on our photos. RARE large centerpiece, I can certainly envision it holding a few candles rather than a bowl, some faux florals or fauna to fill in around them, centering a beautiful table. With hope of finding an oval (new) bowl, fabulous countertop/bar top fruit stand. You'l have the perfect solution and use.
