A Splendid Antique Chinese Rosewood Altar Table. A large and imposing antique Chinese altar table - this is a true'country-house' piece, dating to the late Qing Dynasty - c. The rectangular top consists of a fine single plank enclosed by cleated ends and moulded sides. This is set above a beautifully carved and wonderfully fluid frieze of scrolling foliate design, with fruiting peach boughs.Crucially, this finely worked frieze is entirely intact and free from any loss. Supported on slightly splayed legs, the stretchers each inset with'fish belly' framed moulding. The feet finely detailed with greek key motifs and further tightly carved whorls to the cross-members. A lovely decorators piece and a beautiful addition to the hallway or living room of a country house or fine town house alike. Approximately 210 cms wide x 45cms deep x 106 cms tall. In very good, used'country house' condition. No breaks or loss to the finely carved frieze whatsoever. The upper surface excellent for age: clean and free from any unsightly blemishes. Over time, there has been some slight movement to upper board and associated joins (which I have aimed to show in the photos), but essentially it still flat and very presentable / useable. Lastly, the colour throughout can only be described as sensational.
