With everted ends and straight square legs, this 19th-century altar table embodies classic Qing-dynasty design. Originally used as a domestic altar for ancestor worship, the long console has an expansive table top surface and is minimally decorated with simple cloud-form spandrels. Crafted in China's Shanxi province over two centuries ago, the table has gained a lustrous, beautifully worn finish that only time can achieve.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
