Known as a calligrapher’s table, this expansive, early 19th-century table offered a scholar ample surface space to paint or practice calligraphy. In order to cultivate uncluttered and inspiring surroundings, only a few carefully arranged objects would have been placed upon the table, such as a brush pot, inkstone, or table screen. With round legs and finely beaded spandrels, the table stands at a height that would have allowed the artist to work while standing up. Made of northern elmwood, the table features a beautifully aged lacquer finish, adding a rustic yet elegant note to the farmhouse kitchen or main room.
