This piece also caught our eye though nobody, including the vendor seemed to know exactly what it was for-i think something such as a statue may have been mounted inside it s, o as a display piece for a special item this could make an unique addition for any home decor. There are two petit metal hanging brackets to the reverse and some small drill holes can be seen within the interior ledge which may have been used to secure something-maybe some sort of lighting was once attached. It is an unique piece of ecclesiatical religious treen which measures 11.75 x 10.75 inches dimension and 12.25 inches high or deep. A simply stunning item which weighs 1,495 kgs unpacked. This item is made of gold toleware and oak, wood, bronze.
