As evidenced by the many blade marks on its round top, this low, drum-like table was originally used as a chopping block in a Qing-dynasty kitchen. Shaped from a single block of walnut, the table is etched with shallow grooves in a concentric circle pattern, intended perhaps as a target for chopping accuracy. A century of use has softened the wood's raw texture and imparted a beautiful dark patina.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
