This is a superb example of a piece of "scholar's furniture". In the Chinese furniture tradition, the most elegant pieces frequently date back to the Ming Dynasty, when scholars and wealthy collectors prefered designs of utmost simplicity and purity. This table is waistless and has no decoration at all. It was used for painting caligraphy. The "giant's arm" leg braces are for support. The legs taper into horsehoof feet. The blacker lacquer finish is beautifully patinated.
