Blue Lacquer Kang Table with Drawers
Shanxi, circa 1900
This low table would be great as little coffee table. It is made from elm wood and originally would have been used in a Chinese home in Shanxi province, placed on the heated kang platform that would be used as the everyday living space during colder months. The original finish has been updated with a beautiful, distressed blue lacquer, with a lovely crackled effect. Three shallow drawers each have a brass ring handle, and the table has the 'horse hoof' feet that are so distinctive of Chinese furniture.
