This is a beautiful display stand for a larger sphere. For best results, the sphere should be 3" to 4". I would also put a felt on the top of the stand, underneath the sphere, to cushion it. There are dragons on each of the four sides of the stand. There are pads at the bottom so as not to scratch the surface it is placed on. This stand measures 3-3/8" in height and 2-7/82" in length.
