    For dining, writing, appreciating antiques, or playing games, the square table is the most versatile in Chinese furniture. The high, humpback stretchers of the present lot strengthens the table while lightening the overall appearance, and not interfering with the knees of the sitters.

    Compare with a similar table, with carved aprons, illustrated by S.Handler, Ming Furniture in the Light of Chinese Architecture, Berkeley and Toronto, 2005, p.167. See an earlier related huanghuali table, Ming dynasty, illustrated in Ming Qing gongting jiaju daguan, vol.1, Beijing, 2006, p.181, pl.188.

    Compare with a similar huanghuali square corner-leg table, 17th/18th century, which was sold at Christie's New York, 22 March 2012, lot 1322.
