Altar Table - Elm

C0380

Altar tables were used for ancestor worship in China. Usually a family ancestor portrait would be hung above the table & joss sticks lit & placed on the table for the well being of the household. They were always long & narrow in form - a configuration seldom found in antique European furniture. Woods used are Elm, red elm, walnut & more rarely cypress & pear. Our pieces are mostly 19th century & early 20th century.This elegant table is ideal for use as a console table in a narrow hallway or as a lamp table behind a sofa.
