A late 19thc Chinese carved hardwood folding occasional table with fine patination.
The top detaches from the decorative base and this four legged base folds flat.
The base consists of four stylised dragons as legs and has a central support with a floral carved design.
The top has eight sides and consists of a central plain eight-sided panel with Grecian key pattern surrounding it. Around this there is high relief carving of various mythical creatures including bats, serpents, dragons and birds and also symbols.
Surrounding the top, the edge is a carved bamboo design.
This piece is in very good order & is very practical.
