Object Description

A very fine quality Chinese export lacquer work table. The lid lifts to reveal compartments for needlework tools and storage. The detail of the lacquer work is quite incredible and the whole table is profusely covered, even the inside of the legs and the stretcher. The top is worn, but the exceptional quality and condition of the decoration to the rest of the piece more than makes up for this. This work table comes apart by the use of thumb screws underneath, so it was designed for travelling and perhaps even a campaign piece. The proportions, end support and the shape of the top would indicate an early date of manufacture as well as giving this table very pleasing lines with thin sections and a narrow frieze. There are some repairs to the legs which are a bit wobbly but can be repaired. Please let us know if you need more photos and contact us to discuss your restoration requirements of course.
