Dated to the mid-19th century, this long offering table has all the classic features of a traditional recessed-leg painting table. The table has a broad floating-panel top and straight, round legs linked with double stretchers and topped by simple spandrels. A thick layer of cinnabar-red lacquer coats the exterior, now beautifully worn to reveal the northern elm (yumu) underneath. Large tables such as this were multipurpose, used as domestic altars, work tables, or scholars' desks for painting and writing. Minimally decorated, this long table anchors a space with grand proportions and bright color.

The table has been recently finished with a protective clear coat.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
