PICK UP IN 7 DAYS.This remarkable PHOEBE NANMU Chinese Altar of craftsmanship with highly prized hardwood came out of an estate in Connecticut. This estate contained a huge collection of Chinese furniture dating back over 200 hundred years. I believe this altar table was made in Shanxi and I think that is what is signed under the top. (Let me know Chinese readers if I am wrong.) You can see the beneath the table that it is one giant slab. The altar is very heavy and the wood shimmers with bands and ripples. The front apron is intricate carved pierced wood (there are a few cracks which is due to age). Nothing is broken. Foo dogs finials that corner the edges of the legs which are also pierced in circle intricate patterns. Stunning craftsmanship. A Chinese Ebayer wrote in saying thetable was made in 1920. And the wood might be phoebe. This is what he wrote:"hello, I run across your item. The character at the bottom says: Republic Year 9. that is, the item was made on 1920. It is not Huanghuali. I think it is made of phoebe."I have since researched the wood and I am almost certain it is Phoebe Nanmu a highly prized hardwood with wonderful markings and grain patterns.Measurements:118.5" inches Long15.25" inches Deep36.4" inches Tall Top slab is over 2"inches thick.legs are 13.5"inches wide wood thickness is over 2"inches PICK UP AFTER AUGUST 28TH.
