This solid plank top table, known in colloquial Mandarin as "dubar," is unusual for its simple form and rustic appeal. Unlike the top surface of many Qing-dynasty tables, constructed of a frame with a floating center panel, the dubar surface is made of a single select piece of northern elmwood. Crafted in the early 20th-century in China's Shanxi province, the console table may have served as the altar in a provincial household, laden with offerings to pay respect to their ancestors. With expressive grain and undeniable warmth, this simple console table adds wonderful character to any room.
