Qing Dynasty Elmwood Altar Table from the Shanxi Province China, ca. 1821 - 1850. Handcarved with intricate woodwork and peony motic. Table is 32" high x 57 1/2" long x 13 1/2" wide. Some wear due to age and use but in very good condition. Ex: T.K. Asian Antiques, New York, NY. Construction of traditional wooden Chinese furniture is based primarily of solid wood pieces connected solely using woodworking joints, and rarely using glue or metallic nails. The reason was that nails and glues used did not stand up well to the vastly fluctuating temperatures and humid weather conditions in most of Central and South-East Asia
