Created by a Qing-dynasty artisan over 150 years ago, this petite table with boxwood inlay of auspicious fruit and floral arrangements was likely used as a display stand for a figure or ceramic vase. Appreciated for its smooth texture and bright color, boxwood was a common choice for decorative inlay given its resemblance to bone or ivory when carved in relief. This table was masterfully constructed with concealed joinery, an intricate carved apron, and square legs ending in artfully shaped horse hoof feet.
