More detail

The table is Ming style with flush design. The legs connect the table top with complex dumpling joints. There are vertical supports above the horizontal stretchers forming three openings on each side. The beaded outline is throughout the table. The table is well proportioned with a light appearance.

Below the stretchers are carved dragon spandrels symbolising strength and authority. The legs finish in scroll feet representing scholastic pursuits.
