This elegant 19th century altar table is light and beautifully proportioned. It was masterfully designed with stretchers that appear to wrap around its round legs even though the joints are hidden within. Collectors of Chinese furniture consider tables designed in this way as 19th century riffs on earlier mundane furniture constructed of bamboo. The medallions on the aprons are unusual cloud forms and the top is a solid plank of northern elm. The original black lacquer finish has aged gracefully over time.

“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.”
