Antique Chinese Altar Table with Round Post Legs and Cloud Motif

This piece is from Shanxi, China and is from the early Qing Dynasty period. It features clean lines and a beautifully aged original patina. Can be used as a sofa table, console table, or an altar table. The altar table has clean, simple lines that are wonderfully contradicted by elegantly carving, billowing ruyi. Cloud motif leg stretchers. An additional note about the patina: it is unusually original. Very few all-original, unmodified and unenhanced pieces are now found in China. All wear is "plausible," that is logical and well-supported by close observation and examination. Even the light coloration on the feet is appropriate; Northern Chinese pieces often rested on damp floors, leaching minerals into the first few inches of the legs. The top is gently worn as befits an altar or wine table. Today the piece is ideal as a console under a large painting or as a sofa table.
