Longyan wood is grown in Fujian in the South of China and is used for making furniture, etc. This is a substantial altar table. It has everted flanges at each end. The table is in quite good condition for its age. In some places there are noticeable defects which have not been repaired. Such repair can be done well in Beijing. The carving is strong and good. The top of the table is of one piece of wood. We believe one base of the table may be a bit newer than the rest of the table. The wood is smooth but there are places which have been corroded.
