An unusual and excellent pair of carved antique Chinese hardwood altar tables with inset wickerwork. These are extremely solid and versatile.
They can be used as consoles, at the end of beds, behind sofas, in hallways or as benches. Rare to find a pair, they are simple and elegant with good carving. Traces of dark oxblood lacquer. Chinese furniture is generally made without any glue or nails rather, the pieces are held together by a complicated network of joints. The sophisticated technical abilities of the cabinetmakers and carpenters who made them were incredibly advanced, Cheng notes.
Its very impressive to see the complexity and intricacy of the joints. 52H x 100L x 27W. PLEASE SEE OTHER MY OTHER LISTINGS. These are long, solid wood with woven bamboowork insets and they are light.
