Massive Intricately Carved Antique Chinese Altar Table. This very unusual altar table would be the focal point of any large room. It would also be well suited for commercial use, such as a restaurant. I would also be a great piece for a movie set. The table has a flush panel top with a double curved edge on each end. The wide legs are set flush with the front edge of the top, connected with large double tenons the fit into the mortises on the top. The legs have some relief carvings on the face, as well as some carved projections on the outside edges of the feet. The front apron is covered with unbelievably detailed carvings. Some of these carvings sit in front of others and it is hard to believe that they are carved from a single piece of wood. There is some age /shrinkage cracking in the carvings. The center of the apron has a large bat facing downwards. Behind the wings on each side are smaller seated 3 dimensional bearded scholars. There are also more bat carvings (bats are symbols of good luck), carvings of pumpkins (symbols of prosperity and abundance) and carved grapes (also symbolizes abundance and sometimes fertility). There are also two carvings of what looks like mice or squirrels or rats. Rats symbolize vitality, so it makes sense that it is shown among the grapes. Around all these carvings are many other relief carved designs. There are also similar carved spandrels outside the front legs. Each end of the table has a single drawer with a pierced carved apron below. There is a small pierced carved panel between a double stretcher on each end. The back side is much simpler with a humpback stretcher between the legs. There are relief carved spandrels, although they are much simpler than the front ones. This large unusual table would be a conversation piece because of its size, design and symbolism. Massive Intricately Carved Antique Chinese Altar Table.
