Dated to the early 20th century, this pair of rectangular display tables beautifully exemplifies the elegance of classic Chinese furniture design. The delicate silhouettes are defined by tall, narrow legs linked by floor stretchers and a waisted top decorated with oblong cut outs. A finely beaded edge traces the table's open sides and adds subtle detail to the simple form. Popularized during the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), tall display tables such as this were used to display precious objects, serve tea, or elevate burning incense. Originally darkened by a lacquer coating, the tables have been refinished to reveal the pale coloring and tight grain of their hardwood construction.
