Antique Chinese 87 Inch long Altar Painting Table. This is an unusual style altar, console or painting table. Painting tables are typically taller than other tables so it is a more comfortable height for someone standing and working on it. You could also refer to this as a calligraphy table. This table would look great in a hallway or foyer, or could be used as a serving counter with bar stools.
This Antique Chinese Painting table has a flush panel top with a flat front edge.
Under the top is a flat skirt that has a beautiful relief carved apron below. The bottom of the apron has numerous sections that step up and down. The carvings on the apron are done in a dragon eye pattern. This apron turns down inside the front legs, getting narrower as it nears the bottom. The face of the legs are flat and end in carved block feet.
The ends of this table are very unique. Near the bottom is a straight stretcher with a small bead on the top and bottom edge. This bead matches a bead on the inside edge of the flat legs. Completely enclosing each of the end are 2 panels. The upper narrow panel is carved to compliment the front apron in height and design. The larger lower panel has relief carvings of a vase with flowers in addition to other objects.
The back side of the Antique Chinese 87 Inch Painting Table has a single straight stretcher with a small bead on the top and bottom edges. Their are 3 pair of vertical supports that connect the stretcher to the skit of the table. A bead detail runs along the bottom of the skirt and down the inside of the legs. Like the front, the legs have carved block feet.
A dark brown lacquer is applied to this antique Chinese altar table with some wear consistent with it’s age.
