This 19th century table from Northern China with a flanked top is hand carved with side panels each depicting one of four different blossoms, to represent the seasons, and eight spandrels, each with a dragon in the round, symbolic of strength and luck. The legs end in gently carved base stretchers. Its classical proportions give an air of lightness. A mark on the top surface indicates that it was likely used for incense in a traditional Chinese home.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
