    Antique A Vietnamese Small Altar Offering Stand

    Late 19th to Early 20th century
    33 x 20 17 cm high

    This stand is probably for food offerings to the ancestors. The food represents sustenance needed by the ancestors to complete their journey through the afterlife. They’re symbolic offerings, and the family usually eats the offerings after a short time to avoid wasting the food. Often, the food consists of a combination of fruit. Common are bananas, persimmon, pear, pomelo, and tangerines, all in different colors. The goal is to choose a fruit representing each of five colors, which in turn represents prosperity, notability, longevity, health, and peace.
    Damage to two of the feet.
