This monumental early 19th century flanked top altar table from China's Shanxi province is notable for its robust traditional style. The top is carved from a solid plank of elmwood timber and the thick side panels are carved with uniquely smooth and rounded auspicious ruyi, symbols of good fortune and prosperity. A table of this grand scale would have been placed against the back wall of a large hall or temple where it would have served as a platform for incense burners, candles, and offerings.

“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.”
