Marked by its grand proportions and restrained, Ming-dynasty style, this stately table was either an altar for ancestor worship or a painting table used for viewing painted scrolls or works of calligraphy. The waisted table's bold lines, limited ornamentation, and straight legs braced by double stretchers follow timeless principles of Chinese architectural design and construction techniques. Accentuated by a dark lacquer finish, the table has a clean, sophisticated form that demonstrates the enduring popularity of minimalist design.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
