Faux Bois Concrete Tree Stump Stand w/ Round Base
Faux bois (from the French for false wood) refers to the artistic imitation of wood or wood grains in various media. It was probably first crafted with concrete using an iron armature by garden craftsmen in France called "rocailleurs" using common iron materials: rods, barrel bands, and chicken wire.
This antique tree stand is an excellent example of the technique, and is a truly unique and rare find. Use the stand to hold your Christmas tree or as an urn for leafy branches or other greenery. It's the perfect piece to add a touch of the outdoors indoors, or use as an outdoor planter on your porch or pation. Great texture and natural earth tone colors.
