A fine quality Chinese export lacquer occasional table. Early 19th century, ca 1820.
The tilt top with typical exotic scenes of people, pagodas, lakes, foliage, bridges, fishermen and boats, all set with interconnecting islands. On a deep, rich, red ground, raised by a decorated column with a ”birdcage” action and terminating with unusual well-carved gilt animal paw feet.
In lovely condition throughout, and in a rare colour.
