Two 19th century Chinese window panels of open fretwork are combined to make the top of this large coffee table. Antique fretwork from China is carefully joined with notches and pegs. Variations of fretwork designs range from straight grillwork to elaborate and lavishly adorned carved pieces. The panels on this table are restrained, with just a few finely carved and raised flowers strewn over the grids. The coffee table frame is constructed of aged elm and has C-form legs. Dimensions: height 17" (43 cm), width 47" (120 cm), depth 44" (112 cm).
