A pair of late nineteenth century hardwood console tables, having chamfered returns, re-entrant corners and stretcher bases.

The term ‘huali’ dates back to pre-modern times and has today been extended to ‘huanghuali’. The addition has been made to refer to the mellowed yellow tones that antique examples of the wood adopt when exposed to light. A member of the rosewood family huanghuali too exudes the characteristically sweet fragrance which lingers for years after felling. Huanghuali was the preferred timber for scholar’s furniture during the Ming Period and often bears ghost-like faces in their grain.
