Elm Kang Table
Shanxi, circa 1880
Low level cabinets and tables like this one were used on the heated 'kang' platform in Chinese homes, where members of the household would sit or kneel. This one is in elm wood, with a thick extending top over the chunky legs. Two shallow drawers provide handy storage, each framed with nicely carved detail and with a ring handle fitted over a central floral design. The original dark finish has worn to leave a lovely patina on the front and top surface. Great as a little side table or coffee table.
