A rare, beautiful table from 19th century, China's southern Fu Jian Province. A solid single board top, of tenon and mortise construction, extends nearly 7' long, above a cinched waist and carved strip apron displaying an eternal foliage pattern. The front of the table consists 5 large drawers disguised by painted scenes of birds, fish, flowers and fruits. Depictions are presented on black panels carved to have a continuous ribbon effect, with a contrasting background color of avocado green. Five exposed tenons secure each side panel with carved spandrels. Cabriole legs begin straight, form curves towards the end, terminating in up swirl scrolls. The same scroll pattern is repeated above each opening of the legs, anchored by gilded sunflower forms. A fantastic, narrow (only 13.75"), long table to be used in front of a long wall or hall way.
