Crafted of northern elmwood in China's Shanxi province, this early 19th-century altar table was once used to display an ancestral shrine in a provincial Confucian household. Incense, candles, and fruits would have covered the narrow table as offerings to the family's ancestors. The table's round legs and gently curving spandrels exemplify Qing-dynasty forms, elegantly constructed with traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery techniques. What gives this simple console table its timeless, rustic appeal is its darkened finish, beautifully aged after centuries of use.
