This shallow console table was crafted over 150 years ago in China's Fujian province, and was originally used as an altar table storing incense and other offerings. Elegantly constructed with mortise-and-tenon joinery techniques, the altar is subtly decorated with exquisite inlaid decorations of scholars' objects, flowers, and figures. Amidst the decorations are censers burning incense, brush pots with calligraphy brushes, bulb pots with narcissus flowers, and rootwood plant stands bearing graceful bouquets. The carefully laid decoration contrasts the warm glow of the table's lindenwood and camphor construction, and offers the same storied charm as a finely painted table.

“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.”
