Low tables with drawers are rare and this one is especially unique.

The table has flush design which outlines the carved motifs on the drawers and side panels. The beaded moulding on the framework enhances the linear clarity.

Three sides have motifs of peach blossoms, a long life symbol. Each side also has carved spandrels with wave motifs representing prosperity. The legs finish in inward horse hoof feet which gives a stately presence.
