This gorgeous 19th-century console table was finely crafted from walnut by an artisan in China's Shanxi province. The narrow form would have been ideal for displaying painted scrolls or works of calligraphy. The plank-top surface is supported by square legs linked by floor stretchers and inset with floating panels. These panels are pierced with ruyi designs, auspicious symbols of good fortune and longevity. A fine beaded edge trims the decorative elements, coiling into scalloped cloud-form spandrels atop each leg. The original dark lacquer finish has aged beautifully from centuries of use, lending rich texture to the walnut construction.
