Perfected in the Ming dynasty, complex joinery techniques allowed craftsmen to create furniture with flowing lines, a sense of lightness, and remarkable durability. Crafted with pine, this 20th-century offering table is a beautiful example of this refined approach to design. Worn smooth with a richly toned cinnabar finish, the lacquered table once supported lush offerings of flowers and food as part of traditional rituals honoring ancestors. Ideal as a console or sofa table, the altar features a rectangular floating-panel top, a waisted apron, humpback stretchers and legs that taper to hoof feet.
