Antique Washstand

This beautifully carved and exuberantly painted antique washstand is a wonderful home accent piece. Red is a favorite color in Chinese culture, symbolising joy and good luck.  This piece is highlighted with washes of gold, another emblem of imperialism and wealth.  Detailed and delightful, this washstand would made an excellent plant stand or entry piece and is a unique antique.
