19th Century Chinese Low Kang Table

$6,380

About

Traditionally, a low table such as this would have been used as a daybed, providing not only a place to sleep but also a space to drink tea, play a game, or share an intimate moment. Built in the mid-19th century, this elmwood table was likely commissioned by a wealthy homeowner in China's Shanxi province. The table's simple form is balanced by humpback stretchers and charismatic spandrels, hand-carved to resemble billowing clouds. The original top was replaced by one of crushed bamboo, providing a firm, subtly textured surface, making it ideal as a coffee table or low console.
