With everted ends and straight square legs, this 19th-century altar table embodies classic Qing-dynasty design. Originally used as a domestic altar for ancestor worship, the long console has an expansive table top surface and is minimally decorated with simple cloud-form spandrels. Crafted in China's Shanxi province over two centuries ago, the table has gained a lustrous, beautifully worn finish that only time can achieve.
