These tables were designed as surfaces on which to paint. The height and depth are appropriately proportioned for an artist to stand and freely use the brush over a long paper or silk surface. Fine-grain wood, such as huanghuali, were reserved for painting tables as the craftsmen strove for the pure beauty of the grain and structural form.
Compare two longer huanghuali tables, one sold in our New York rooms, 19th March 1997, lot 383, and again 23rd March 2011, lot 671, and another in these rooms, 5th October 2011, lot 2107.
