There is a "secret compartment" underneath the three drawers (the place used for storing valuables in the old days). The copper hardware is original. The altar is handcrafted and structured with wooden pegs and tenon structure, which is the very traditional craftsmanship for furniture making in ancient China. Original patina and wear. Made from Zelkova wood with beautiful natural wood grain, the altar is very solid and has been kept in excellent condition.
