Antique Qing Chinese Altar or Scholar's Table
Our large Chinese table from the late Qing dynasty period, features elaborate carved skirts depicting foo lions that are partially gilded, pierced and recessed legs depicting flowers eminating from vases, and raised flanges at the ends. Recently acquired from a collection in Manhattan. 85 by 35.5 by 18.75 inches. The finest and most ornate table of its kind we have seen in our 19 years in business.
Structurally sound. With considerable wear to the finish throughout, plus small losses, scratches and embedded surface dirt.
