Folding Table

Currently not on display

A well worn collapsible table, that is now secured with brackets. The top is lacquered red, with a floral decoration on the under edge. The apron has a repeating swastika motif. The table panels are carved in deep relief with two Chinese-style dragons facing each other, inbetween which is an overflowing dish of jewels. The side panels are carved with medallions filled with shou or good luck symbols, flower pods and foliage. It is likely that a majority of the table was highlighted with gold, but the table has either been over painted or the colours have faded and the colourings are now predominately green, brown and red.
