Here is a vintage Chinese hardwood carved solid round base. It is a simple tapered circle with carved scallops along the bottom edge to form feet. There is a large threaded metal rod mounted in the center. The base is 3 1/2" wide at the top, 4 1/4" wide at the bottom, and 1 5/8" tall to the top of the metal rod. The wood is dense and heavy, it may be mahogany. It is marked China on the top in carved block letters.
