Circa 1870, Ceylonese hardwood temple/dinner gong. The profusely carved wooden stand has a figure in the centre and is surrounded on all sides by foliate carving. On the base are 2 mythical figures standing atop of dragons. In the centre of the carving is a circular carved bezel which has hanging from it a stylised shaped bronze gong. There is a wooden beater which is of tapering form with a large fabric head. The piece stands on an elongated base with moulded edges and sits on 4 carved cabriole legs. Very stylish and intricate carving, a wonderful decorative piece.
