明末至清初 黃花梨六方材霸王棖條桌成對


with a single-board floating panel within a frame with facetted edges, above plain aprons and facetted spandrels, interrupted by gently splayed hexagonal-sectioned legs, each with a similarly facetted giant's arm brace extending to the underside of the table

183 by 51.7 by h. 84.5 cm

The tables are in good overall condition and were constructed from the same huanghuali trunk, with horizontal wood grain to some of the spandrels. There are some areas of repair/replacement to one table and the giant's arm braces of both, which do not detract from the original structure.


整體品相完整,均用同一棵料做成,部分牙角有陰陽紋。其中一桌有幾處修配,兩桌霸王棖幾處修配,但保存原有樣式。
