Found in Kerala, India, this elaborate antique centerpiece was hand carved in teak and gilded, with red painted details. It features a large, intricately executed crown over a sunburst backdrop that displays a pelican exposing its sacrificial blood. It sits atop a rectangular platform with a gadrooned edge, having scrolled arms that form a V on the surface, affording a place for the Eucharist. It would be a stunning feature in a chapel or on an altar table.
