Chinese Carved Hardwood Table with Mirrored Inserts

fourth quarter 19th/first quarter 20th century, having a rectangular top inset within a thick conforming outer frame, over a narrow frieze with simple pierced mirrored slits, with a densely carved apron depicting dragons chasing the flaming pearl amid swirling clouds, the design continuing to embellish the legs, which terminate in four block feet carved with a mountainous design.
h. 36", w. 58-1/2", d. 29-1/2"


In good "as found" condition. The table is sturdy and very solid. The top has been repainted. It exhibits some shrinkage along the lines where boards are laminated together and about a 5" wood tear along one of those lines. Scattered small past repairs. There are typical small chips, losses and flakes to the edges of the carved surfaces, but no significant losses noted. There is a larger, shallow chip beneath a drawer; the pieces are in a drawer and could be reattached.
