This monumental early 19th century flanked top altar table from China's Shanxi province is notable for its robust traditional style. The top is carved from a solid plank of elmwood timber and the thick side panels are carved with uniquely smooth and rounded auspicious ruyi, symbols of good fortune and prosperity. A table of this grand scale would have been placed against the back wall of a large hall or temple where it would have served as a platform for incense burners, candles, and offerings.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
