Really decorative antique Chinese carved wood architectural element or perhaps a piece from the top of a piece of furniture or cabinetry. The hanger itself is antique so it's been this way for quite some time. There is a break in the wood as shown but I don't believe a piece has ever broken completely out as I can see no breaks above this section. It measures 21" by 6 1/4" and is very well carved with both characters and florals/birds. An intriguing piece! Dates to the 19th Century.
