Crafted in Shanxi province in the early 20th century, this wide, three-drawer chest was once used as a home altar for ancestor worship. The plank top surface is framed by everted ends and linked to the sides with decorative stepped spandrels. Designed for use atop a kang platform, the low chest has three narrow drawers once used for storing incense and other accessories. With its simple form and aged walnut construction, this tabletop altar is an elegant storage solution for a mantel or console table.
