Unique Japanese Low Table - Shou Sugi Ban Cedar Wood Coffee Table

$22,949.50

About

A very fine 19th century antique Japanese low table -  A traditional Japanese low table constructed from a incredible substantial cedar plank and raised on elegant out swept legs. Japan, circa 1900 Measures: Height 30cm Width 152cm Depth 90cm This Japanese low table is finished with a technique called Shou Sugi Ban. It is a Japanese technique of preserving wood. The surface is charred with fire and then sanded back to a smooth surface. It is commonly used for the exterior cladding of buildings where the charred timber protects against insects and as a water repellant. In this case, the technique has been used to artistically enhance the appearance of this Japanese low table surface, accentuating the strong vivid grain of the cedar tree.
