Crafted of northern elmwood in China's Shanxi province, this early 19th-century altar table was once used to display an ancestral shrine in a provincial Confucian household. Incense, candles, and fruits would have covered the narrow table as offerings to the family's ancestors. The table's round legs and gently curving spandrels exemplify Qing-dynasty forms, elegantly constructed with traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery techniques. What gives this simple console table its timeless, rustic appeal is its darkened finish, beautifully aged after centuries of use.

“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.”
