A good quality polychrome lacquer panel mounted on a later base.

The top beautifully decorated with typical chinoiseries of courtly robed mandarins surrounded by mounted horsemen and court ladies.

All set in romantic idyllic gardens with pavilions, bridges, fine gazebos, foliage and rockwork.

Of particular interest is the lady being pushed along by her attendant in a wheeled canopied palanquin – a rare subject adding much interest.

Some old restorations commensurate with its age.

Coffee tables that harmonize with other antiques are hard to find, most are modern. This use of a delightfully decorated antique panel provides an ideal solution.
