This is a great French wooden dome base from 1900 Finish is original black lacquer. Footed and has groove for glass dome. I'm afraid the glass dome is long gone, but you could possibly purchase one at a hobby store. Originally used for taxidermy. These do make great trays to hold your favorite bottle of brandy :) Measures 18 1/2" long, 8 1/2" wide and 2" tall. Good condition. One foot has a small piece missing, but it does not effect the stability of the tray. No wobbling.
