Long, narrow altar tables were the focal point of a traditional Chinese home, prominently displayed in the main hall as a place of family worship or as a display of precious objects. This long flush-sided table is beautifully proportioned with a solid plank top surface set upon scrolled sleeping dragon carved legs. Constructed in the mid-19th century with mortise-and-tenon joinery techniques, the table is made of carved northern elmwood (yumu) and cloaked in dark black lacquer, now beautifully aged from use.
