Antique Chinese Ming Painting Table (3184), Circa 1800-1849
This Authentic Antique Chinese Painting Table is handcrafted in elegant Ming "Waist furniture" style. The "Waist Furniture" （束腰） is an important feature of the Ming-style furniture. The "waist" just below the tabletop is made from a separate piece of wood and carved in a "narrower waist" connecting the tabletop and the table body in a very unique way. The "waist" part of the table has open carvings for decoration. The "apron" below the "waist" is decorated with intricate "relief" carving of traditional Chinese design motif. The detailed "relief" carvings and the outlines of the tables show the great workmanship of furniture making in the old days. The table is handcrafted and structured with wooden pegs and tenon structure, which is the very traditional craftsmanship for furniture making in ancient China. Can be used as a console table or a desk. Circa early of 19th century. Original patina and wear. Made of Elm wood with beautiful wood grain, the table is solid and has been kept in excellent condition. The table can be used from both sides. (The photos here show all the sides of the table)
