Chinese antique table
Tables come in a variety of forms according to their use in the classical Chinese home. The altar table was used to hold the family shrine and make offerings to honor the deceased ancestors. Tea and flower tables were for decorative use and formal entertaining. Dining and gaming tables were generally found only in the wealthier households as they required the use of chairs.

Low square tables were reserved for use on the k’ang, a heated brick platform which was the center of daily life. K’angs are still found in rural Chinese homes today. Style, shape and joinery techniques varied by region and province. These regional differences coupled with woods used help us identify age and province of origin for most of these antique Chinese tables.
