About this item

This lovely elm table, with a waisted top and mini cabriole legs, was used on the 'kang' platform that was heated from underneath and acted as the main everyday living space in a Chinese home in Shanxi province in the early 19th century. It has a delightful warm tone and a lovely patina which has established over the last 200 years.

Originally the table would have been used for serving food and drink and possibly for taking opium, it has evidence of its earlier life in the form of a number of scorch marks on the surface.

Use today as a low coffee table and a centerpiece for a living room.
