During winter in the colder provinces of China, life revolved around the kang, a heated brick platform that household members would sit or recline upon. Low tables placed atop the kang provided a convenient surface for dining, drinking tea, or playing games.

Crafted of beautiful huali rosewood, this low kang table follows the classic form, featuring a waisted apron, a rectangular floating-panel top, and short corner legs ending in cloud-form feet. A beaded edge runs along the apron and down each leg, terminating in a spiral at the knee. The apron is finely carved with a motif of bats amongst clouds, symbolizing luck and good fortune.
