Offered here is a neat piece of wall art or looks pretty impressive when displayed or propped on a heavy metal plate stand. At eye level it adds a great point of interest on a table. The wood, I am guessing is oak; it is quite hefty. The chiseled carving is a flower looking similar to a lotus. The piece measures 12 ½ inches long by 9 ¼ inches wide; due to the irregular chiseled edges this measurement varies at different points. The depth of the bottom plank is 1 ¾ inches; this also varies at different points. The flower in the center measures 9 1/8 inches long by 6 ½ inches wide by 1 1/8 inch deep. Total depth is 2 7/8 inches deep. Needs hardware on back if hanging on wall. I Sales tax must be collected for buyers living in or picking up in New York State. Local tax rate applies.
