Low Walnut Five Drawer Table
Shanxi, circa 1880
This long, low table would be perfect in front of a sofa as a long coffee table. It is made from walnut, with the original dark finish still in place but worn around the feet. It would have been designed for use in a Shanxi home, placed on the 'kang' - a raised platform heated from below during the colder months. Five shallow drawers provide useful storage, each with a simple central moulding and ring handle. The four feet are each carved in relief with a square, scrolling pattern that adds a lovely detail to an otherwise simple box-like style referred to as 'zhuo' in Chinese.
