Early 20th Century Chinese Ruyi Ribbon Table

About

Hand-carved over one hundred years ago, this table flows like a ribbon, rounding the bend to form legs that end in gracefully curved feet. On each of its bench-style legs, a carved ruyi promises good fortune. This table would have originally been prized as a select musician's stand on which to play the qin, a traditional Chinese string instrument. We love the bold contours, graphic use of negative space, and history carried forward that make this table timeless. Additional dimensions: Table apron to floor: 17.25".
