Early 19th Century Chinese Eight Dragons Flanked Altar Table

About

This 19th century table from Nothern China with a flanked top is hand-carved with side panels each depicting one of four different blossoms, to represent the seasons, and eight spandrels, each with a dragon in the round, symbolic of strength and luck. The legs end in gently carved base stretchers. Its classical proportions give an air of lightness. A mark on the top surface indicates that it was likely used for incense in a traditional Chinese home. Additional dimensions: Table apron to floor 21.5".
