Catalogue Note

The shape of this particular table is rare as it incorporates a number of features that distinguish it from more conventional and restrained Chinese designs. Nancy Berliner discusses a table of this type in Beyond the Screen: Chinese Furniture of the 16th and 17th Centuries, Boston, 1996, pp. 134-135, cat. no. 22. A similar table is illustrated in The Chuang Family Bequest of Fine Ming and Qing Furniture in the Shanghai Museum, Hong Kong, 1998, fig. 21, p. 60. Another similar example was sold in these rooms, 29th and 30th November 1993, lot 442.
