Large Blue Lacquer Chinese Altar Table
Shandong, circa 1920
A very elegant blue lacquer altar table, which originates from Shandong province around the early 20th century. Intricately carved spandrels are in the form of inverted 'ruyi' cloud heads (a ruyi being a sceptre like object that symbolises power and good fortune). The panels between the legs are also decorated with beautiful carvings. Very much a statement piece for any hallway or sitting room.
