Early 19th Century Chinese Altar Table with Everted Ends

About

In ancient China slender, long tables like such as this one are often referred to as “altar tables” and used to hold musical instruments, flowers, or vases. This 150-year-old table was carved in China’s Shanxi province. It has averted ends curving upward at a dramatic angle, which gives the sturdy elmwood table a lighter, more whimsical feel. The apron is intricately with a traditional interlocking pattern often seen in Chinese design.
