A Rare Lithophane on a Stand
The lithophane is carved porcelain and although one can see carving of a scene on one side, it is difficult to see the scene until a light is placed behind the back of the porcelain (on the flat side). A candleholder is found behind the lithophane where a candle can be lit to illuminate the lithophane. (The scene in this one is a minstrel playing a banjo). Excellent condition.
Measurements: 4-3/4" h
