Shaanxi Carved Elm Table with Drawer
Shaanxi, circa 1870
The single full width drawer on this lovely table is beautifully painted and carved in deep relief with a floral design. The reds, greens and oranges would once have been much brighter, but have softened to more subtle colours framed by the worn black lacquer of the table legs and top surface. This style of table, made from elm wood and with the distinctive carvings and studded ironwork around the drawer, is typical of Shaanxi province. With its beautiful decorative drawer the table would make a highly unusual console in a hall or reception room.
