This offering table from China's Shanxi province dates to the early 19th century and was originally used to display an ancestor shrine in a provincial household. Incense, candles, and fruits would have covered the narrow table as offerings to the family's ancestors. The table front is sectioned into five panels, two of which are functional drawers decorated with a carved border and round iron studs. Each drawer is fitted with a simple brass drop handle and a sliding lock. The offering table has an otherwise minimal design, with a floating panel top, simple spandrels, and square legs linked by straight stretchers. Originally coated with brown lacquer, the table's finish has aged beautifully with time, left as-is to showcase its rich character and inimitable weathered texture.
