About this item

The intricately carved spandrels on this low table are in the form of dragons, delicately carved with the dragon heads just below the top extended lid. The bottom apron is also carved. The table has three drawers, still with the old handles, with fixed panels below. The top ends in raised flanges, giving an indication of some religious purpose to the table. It was most likely used on the heated kang platform in the home and used for offerings to ancestors. The black laquer finish, now worn and faded over the years, is original. Great as an unusual coffee table, it is also nicely sized for use as a TV stand.
