This elegant black lacquer long table has a waist decorated with the elongated begonia done in open style carving.  The top is a solid piece of wood.  The legs are straight with large horse hoof.  A humpback stretcher is used between the legs to strengthen the support.  The table has thick black lacquer finishes in well preserved condition.  The proportion and the craftsmanship are well executed.  This piece has very fine proportions - the hoof, the thickness of the legs, and the lacquer finishes are all representative of the highest Beijing craftsmanship.   This type of furniture is from a scholarís home done with good taste and more refined.  There are not many surviving examples of this type.
