This elegant 19th century altar table is light and beautifully proportioned. It was masterfully designed with stretchers that appear to wrap around its round legs even though the joints are hidden within. Collectors of Chinese furniture consider tables designed in this way as 19th century riffs on earlier mundane furniture constructed of bamboo. The medallions on the aprons are unusual cloud forms and the top is a solid plank of northern elm. The original black lacquer finish has aged gracefully over time.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
