Oriental Coffee Table, Rustic Elm
Shanxi, circa 1880
With its thick plank top, chunky legs and protruding tenons, this table is distinctly rustic in appearance. It comes from the central Chinese province of Shanxi and is made from elm wood. With a beautiful, deep grained, cracked surface and the signs of use over its many years, it would be perfect today as a coffee table with plenty of country charm.
