Chinese Low Bamboo Table

About

This late 19th century low square table from Southern China is built from spotted bamboo. It is brilliantly constructed with a geometric fretwork apron and legs held in place with double wraparound stretchers. Creating furniture from bamboo was a traditional Chinese art form in itself, requiring carpenters with very specific skills, talents, and training.
