Catalogue Note

The present table is notable for the upswept flanges set to either end. This feature more commonly appears on tall recessed-leg tables and rarely on low tables. Another low table with everted flanges but with recessed-legs from the Arthur M. Sackler Collection was sold in these rooms, 16th September 2009, lot 24. 

Dr Otto Buchard (1892-1965) was a famous dealer of Chinese art and a specialist on Song dynasty ceramics. He lived in Beijing but had a gallery in Berlin and an agent in New York. A side table with upturned ends was sold by Dr. Burchard to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Missouri in 1946 and is also illustrated in Gustav Ecke, Chinese Domestic Furniture, Rutland, 1962, pl. 57, no. 43.
