Vintage Red Chinese Kang Table from Shanxi

Available for Delivery 2-4 Weeks - not currently on display in the shop.

This small low table originates in the Shanxi Province of Northern China and was made in the 1920s. Known as a Kang table, this distinctive style of small table was used on a Kang, a type of raised platform found in the north of China. It has recently been restored in an artisan workshop in Beijing where it was repainted in this vibrant red colour. This has been rubbed back, revealing areas of the dark undercoat used. The single drawer and solid front structure are framed with an apron and side wings, giving this table a distinctive silhouette. Its solidity makes it an ideal low coffee table or a decorative platform to display a special item. 

Dimensions: 69(w) x 48(d) x 33(h) cm

Materials: pine with brass fittings
