Carved Console Table, Warm Elm
Great as a modern day console table with a beautiful lattice shelf at the bottom, this warm elm piece is a reproduction of desks that were common in China during the later Qing dynasty, used by the scholarly classes in Beijing. The lovely carved lattice design of the low shelf harks back to earlier door and window panels in Chinese homes and is made in the same way - each individual piece of wood fitting into the next with mortise and tenon joints. The circular brass handles on the two drawers add a further oriental touch while the addition of a smooth rattan panel into the top surface makes it more hardwearing.
