The present table, with the richness of the luminous wood subtly tempered by its elegantly restrained lines, exemplifies an iconic form of late Ming /early Qing dynasty hardwood furniture. Designed to be placed against a wall and support an array of treasured objects bracketed between the gracefully rounded flanges, the table would have been a valued addition to an elite literati household.
