The pronounced grain and warm color of golden pine are wonderfully displayed in the artful carvings of this beautifully proportioned altar table. Expressive scrollwork articulates the table’s graceful flow from apron to leg to feet, marked by swirling cloud formations and floral motifs. Crafted by artisans in China's Gansu province, this 19th-century table was once topped with flowers, portraits, and incense as part of the ritual practice of honoring ancestors.

“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.”
