Antique Chinese 40 inch square Elm Table with detailed carvings. The table can be used as Mahjong table, game table, or small dining table.
This antique table has a flush panel top. The curved edges have a small bead on the bottom. The top Extends beyond the legs.
All four sides have the a different relief carved scene that is set into a panel in the center of the apron. This carving sits above the humpback stretcher and between the vertical stretcher supports. On either side of the vertical supports is a pierced carving of what appears to e at first glance a bat, which is a symbol of good luck. It is also possible that the carvings are moths, another often used symbol.
Each of the simple round Ming style legs has a carved Phoenix or pheasant on either side. Angled outward from the legs, under each corner of the top, is a carving of a squirrel.
Finished in a warm brown lacquer, the table shows appropriate wear from use but has a beautiful patina. The legs have been trimmed down some to make the table more usable, and the legs currently have adjustable height floor protectors added.
As seen in a couple of the photos, we have 2 pair of antique Chinese side chairs. (CHAIRS ARE NOT INCLUDED). Though not quite as old as the table, the 4 chairs work well with it. The chairs have also had some repairs and restoration, but if you are interested in purchasing them, we are offering them at a very low price when combined with the table. Please email us for pricing.
