Chinese Red Lacquer Ribbon Table

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

With no stretchers or spandrels, this elegantly simple vintage table forms one beautiful, continuous ribbon, gracefully curving inward to form legs. The table’s red hue comes from many layers of hand-applied lacquer with a crackled texture. Remarkably contemporary for its economy of design and emphasis on quality materials, this sculptural table is right at home today in a traditional or modern setting.
