Antique Chinese camphor wood alter table

Chinese camphor wood alter table

This is a fairly large camphor wood tiao an (console table) which also comes from Beijing. I had a close at this piece and it was in surprisingly good condition. The materials are satisfyingly thick and the carvings are delicious. Crisp. Beautiful.
