A very fine and rare piece of 19th century Vietnamese furniture in a high Chinese style. Carved from a high quality of rosewood. The surface retains some old black varnish or lacquer. The surface needs some oil and care.
Height: 38 in x width: 37 in x depth: 22 12 in.


There is a slight wobble to the table due to drying organic glue. The work has been lacquered a dark brown/black at some point. This lacquer has been poorly removed which has resulted in a streaky coloration throughout. Remnants of this dark lacquer paint visible throughout the work including some dark streaks underneath the table. There is at least one missing applied wooden piece along the skirting along the front of the table. Some pieces are slightly loose. Some seperation along the joints. There is at least one glue repair to a leg along the back, visible from underneath the table (back right leg). There is a small split to the front skirting. Some seperation along the panel of the top of the table. There are waterstains along the top of the table. Wear along the feet as expected. Moderate wear throughout as expected.
