Qing Dynasty Chinese Lacquer and Mother-of-Pearl Small Table, 18th-19th Century

$4,800

About

A stunning mid-Qing dynasty Chinese lacquer and mother-of-pearl inlaid small table, originally used as a scholar's display stand or incense table. The top of the table inlaid with mother-of-pearl to depict a landscape scene of scholars in an ornate garden shaded by a large willow tree and blossoming peony, and a small meandering stream. The figures engaged in a lively revelry, playing music and dancing. The high waist with large cloud or ruyi shaped cut-outs. The shaped apron featuring medallions of floral sprays against a scrolling foliate ground, all inlaid with mother-of-pearl. The table covered in a dark brown, nearly black lacquer, and inlaid with hundreds of small chips of cut mother-of-pearl. The mother-of-pearl, mellowed with age, still with flashes of iridescence.
