This vintage low table originates in Shanxi Province in Northern China in around 1920. 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 distressed green. This has been rubbed back to show areas of the dark undercoat and pine wood beneath. The single drawer and solid front structure are framed with a decorative apron and side wings, giving this table a more distinctive ornate presence. The solidity of the piece makes it an ideal low coffee table or a decorative platform to display a special item and is a good height as a sidetable.
Dimensions: 56(w) x 40(d) x 28(h) cm
