This rectangular side table dates to the early 20th century and would have been a versatile surface throughout a Qing-dynasty home, used for serving tea, displaying floral arrangements, and burning incense. The table features a floating-panel top, straight round legs, and two drawers with original brass pull handles. The decorative apron is hand-carved to mimic rounded strips of bamboo wrapped around the table legs. Bamboo was a favored motif in late-Qing furniture, as it expressed humility for past construction methods and upheld Taoist values of naturalism. Whether placed in an entryway or beside your favorite armchair, this simple table is a lovely addition to any interior.

Additional Dimensions:
Drawers: 16.5"W x 13.5"D x 4"H
Table Apron to Floor: 22.5"
