Description

We are so in love with this incredibly beautiful center table. This gorgeous antique comes from China circa 1850-1900 at the height of the Victorian era when Asian imports were all the rage. It could have been an antique at that time so could be older. You must look closely at the photos and take note that the 45 wide top is made of one, yes, I said one, piece of wood! Also notice the warm rich patina of the hand carved wood which can only become this beautiful from age and use. There is even a small triangular patch on the top’s edge where a craftsman carefully and skillfully repaired an imperfection. The center table has an interesting history. It is typically round or octagon and slightly taller than a dining table and its original intended use was to stand in the center of the entry hall to facilitate business transacted between the landowner and his tenants. As estates evolved so did the center table and when business transactions moved to a manager’s office the center table became a thing of beauty representing grandeur rather than business. Today we still use a center table in our foyers but with homes having smaller entries we have expanded their use to other areas of our homes. Maybe the living room, master bedroom, library, or office. Wherever you decide to use this magnificent piece….you first need to make it yours.
