Chinese table

We spotted this folding table at Hoet's Antiek and my boyfriend was instantly smitten by its lovely three dimensional decoration. Table had just arrived and the antique shop owner had not had time to do any restoration yet. We took it as it was and hence got it with a good price. We call it Chinese but I reckon it has rather been influenced by Chinese designs than actually being a real Chinese piece. I'm not an expert though.


Previous owner pretty much destroyed it by keeping (by the looks of it) plant pots on top of it. The water leaked through the pots and damaged the surface. I can not understand how someone can be so silly and ruin a beautiful piece of furniture. We keep a bowl or a large tea light holder (no water!) on the worst damaged spot.

Ostin varjostimen pari vuotta sitten yhdesta putiikista Haarlemissa. Kun ruokahuoneen seina oli maalattu, muistin etta varjostin lojuu jossain ullakolla. Yllattaen vari osui aivan nappiin. Aivan sattumaa siis.
