Three Drawer Carved Coffer Table
Shaanxi, circa 1820
This gorgeous antique table, with three decorative drawers, is from the central Chinese province of Shaanxi. The style is typical of that region, with metal studded frames around the drawers and heavy metal hardware. The drawers still show old paintings of flowers in reds, greens and blues - now more muted in colour but still clear. Once used as a coffer to store money and other valuables, the drawers were designed to be locked using the long brass handles. Today the table would be perfect staged with a lamp and ornaments in a hallway or living room.
