Rare Chinese Antique Side Table
Asian Antique Table (Rare Chinese Antique Side Table). Rare, circa 1700's, antique Chinese side table or wine table who's design and style seem to pre-date the Ming style. This elm wood table exemplifies the subtlety of Chinese classical Furniture & Furnishings-with the negative space being as important as the positive space. The apron’s lobed contours with central cusp sweep outwards and down the leg with only the carved detail of an inverted ruyi slightly detouring the flow as it ends in a subtle horse hoof foot. The table features a waisted construction and a floating panel top; which overhands the table. This table was once covered with elegant lacquer; remaining today is a lovely brown and black worn patina. There are two stretchers between each of the side legs. One of the legs has a "bite" of wood missing-which can be repaired. Antique Asian Furniture & Furnishings: Rare Chinese Antique Side Table from Shanxi Province, China.
