Likely commissioned for his studio, this 19th-century writing table offered a scholar ample surface space to draft poetry or practice calligraphy. To cultivate uncluttered and inspiring surroundings, only a few carefully arranged objects would have been placed upon the table, such as a brush pot, inkstone, or table screen. The waisted table has a standard mitered frame with a floating panel and straight round legs stabilized by simple spandrels and graceful giant's arm braces. Made of northern elmwood, the table is cloaked in a richly textured lacquer finish, worn at the feet from a century of use.
