Retaining its original lacquer finish, this antique, Chinese square table features hand carved and pierced floral details in the waist. The carved apron curves into cabriole legs, with cloud-form lines. The legs, supporting a humpback, box stretcher, end on scrolled feet with carved leaf decoration and the unusual addition of a spindle support behind each leg. The piece sits atop a footed, box platform with an open center. This form makes a great center table.
