Asian Red Lacquer Console Table

SKU: 17F07
  • Beautiful Chinese red lacquer elm console table. Table features a distressed smooth finish, three drawers with brass pulls and black lacquer and gold leaf design. The drawers picture crabs, lobster and peonies. The crab signifies prosperity, success and status in Chinese symbolism because the Chinese word referring to its shell (first, or jia) is a pun on the term used for the highest score that can be reached on the Chinese Imperial Examinations. The peony, "the king of the flowers" is a symbol of royalty and virtue. It is called the "flower of welath and honour" and is widely used to symbolise wealth and honour. 

    Bottom shelf of the piece has open lattice wood work in black.
