Plank Top Storage Console
Dongbei, circa 1860
This large table is made from solid pine and comes from the Dongbei region in north east China. The old lacquer has been stripped back to leave the attractive, pale wood colour that gives a more rustic look. When it was first made the spaces behind the drawers would have been accessed by sliding the panels in front to the sides. The table has been modified recently to add the two more traditional drawers, making it more practical for use as a console table.
