This Antique Chinese Altar table has a single plank top. The edge has a molded design that steps inward with a protruding bead at the bottom. There is a molded flange on the top of each end. The ends of the tenons that connect the legs to the top are visible on the surface.
The wonderful style of the apron on this antique Chinese console table immediately draws your attention. The main skirt, or apron below the center of the table is a flat board with a scalloped bottom. You can see how the bottom edge has been carved to leave a continuous bead on the bottom edge. At each end of the apron, inside the legs, are intricately relief and pierced carved spandrels. The carvings include lotus flowers and lilly pads and are obviously the work of a true craftsman. There are similar spandrels outside the legs, visually supporting the long overhanging ends of the top.
Leg and Feet Details:
The front legs have multiple molded details and are slightly splayed. Each pair of end legs sits on a carved footrest that created a complete frame ate each end. There are 2 horizontal stretchers that add additional support on the ends. 3 carved panels complete the ends, each showing a different design.
A rich deep reddish brown Cabernet lacquer is applied to most of this antique Chinese 91 Inch carved altar table. There are a few shrinkage cracks mostly visible in the spandrels. This piece shows it age very well and has a great patina.
The back side of the table is much simpler, lacking in the carvings and lacquer finish that are on the front and ends.
