Double Sided Table with Drawers
Shanxi, circa 1880
This large, double sided table would easily seat eight people as a dining table or could be used as a large desk. There are four shallow drawers at each side - perfect for holding place settings, cutlery or napkins or for office papers. Each drawer is fitted with a simple, traditional ring handle. The table is made from elm and originates from Shanxi province. The dark lacquer finish is now worn and distressed to give an attractive patina that is full of character.
