About this item
This elegant, elm wood table originates from Shanxi, central China, circa 1850 and is made in a classic Ming design with tapered legs and horse hoof feet.
It is in an exceptional condition, beautifully made with its original lacquered finish, which has lightened over the years and now reveals a paler wood beneath forming a lovely patina.
The top surface is waisted and the stretchers on all four sides are in a typical 'S' shape, linked to the upper part of the table with six delicately carved 'double coin' symbols to denote wealth and prosperity.
The quality of this mid 19th century table suggests that it would have been made for a member of the upper echelons of Chinese society.
Today it makes a lovey console table in a hallway or living room, adding elegance, charm and character.
