Early-20th century yak butter lamp stand with the drawers over the doors. This style evolved over the centuries, with the widening to two doors happening at the end of the 19th century. The kyungbur is excellent and the doors are robust in their presentation. The well groomed Zipak on the front doors has multiple stings of Cintamani that he is guarding for the practitioner. The sides have a very regal torma offering (the blue and green circles) with gold Durva grass swirling out to the Mahamudra mists. Please see iconography for more details. The Chösum stand is painted on both sides and the front, the top and back are not painted. The only metal hardware are the Silk Road transit tax coins used for escutcheon on the drawer pulls. The center divider with the kyungbur between the doors is the door pull for the right hand door. The doors hinge on wooden pegs at the top and bottom of each door about 1 inch in from the trailing edge. This Chösum stand comes with background information, iconography and a Certificate of Authenticity signed by one of the monks. Just a note of some damage: the left and right side at the bottom and in particular the back left leg, the zigzag kyungbur is missing in spots.
