Chinese Antique Elm Painting Table
Shanxi, circa 1870
This lovely table comes from Shanxi in central China and has a simple, pure style. Referred to in China as painting tables, they would have been used not only for calligraphy and painting but also as general work areas. It is made from elm wood, with the original finish worn revealing the paler wood beneath. Today the table would work well as a deep console or could be used as a desk in a home office.
