Memory ware shard pedestal standThis is a really beautiful and detailed memory ware pedestal. It is covered with a particularly rich variety of shards from very fine china, as well as doll heads, baby figurines, patterned glass, a china frog and rooster's head, a lady's watch, and a doll's cup and pitcher. The spaces between the shards are painted in an old, dark, oxidized gold. In the center top is a heavy hammered copper ashtray that is not attached. It lifts off to reveal a round open space. While probably not original to the stand, this is how we found it, so we are offering it as is.

There is a fair amount of loss around the lower edges of the top, with a lesser amount on the edges of the base. This is not at all obvious or intrusive to us, we had to look closely to see some of it. Take a look at the many closeup images to see the great detail for yourself, and if you have any questions, give us a call. This wonderful stand was made in the early 1900's. Some of the decoration appears to be much older. It measures 28" high by about 9" by 9". The price is $775.00. Inventory Code: THHA.   Memory ware pedestal stand ... The other sides ...
