CHINESE QING ANTIQUE PAKTONG BRASS OPIUM WAR DAMPER PIPE BOWL STAND RESTBeautiful and rare. Two different ancient life scenes were engraved at each side of the stand, all other flat surfaces were also engraved of different patterns and "shou" a Chinese character for longevity which also is a symbol of this specific paste.

It seemed to have its feet removed from the look at the bottom, some of the items of similar style have thin, taller feet with open-work which could not survived through time and were bent or crushed then were removed. And of course some have no feet originally.A nice cleanup will definitely bring back the beauty of this rare, artistic bowl stand.
