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.

“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.”
