The Collection >> Ming style furniture >> Pair of console tables
A good pair of waisted console tables in Elm and brown lacquer,most of which is intact on the base and legs The simple small hoof leg is in the ming style , as is the waisted construction and the corner legs. the top surface is without finish . It is smooth and naturally polished to the touch.The condition of the underside of the table is consistent with a table of this age .It is dry and lacquered. Both table tops have been off and the bases tightened up . This is fairly normal.The pale top surface is attractive , but could be polished to introduce a little colour if required , and the lacquer on the legs could be brightened up with an oil and wax finish.Although in the Ming style , i would date these tables at early 19thc , or just a little earlier . The pair were bought in Beijing from a well know dealer most of who's stock comes from Shanxi province. On one table , three of the legs have been tipped , and a piece let in to the top. A full set of pictures is available on request.
