    Well proportioned and elegantly designed, the current table captures the essence of literati taste which has been admired since the late Ming dynasty. Its simplicity, fluidity and well-balanced design, made possible by sophisticated joinery, allows for a minimal use of material and elegant proportions.

    A related huanghuali table, 17th century, is in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, illustrated by C.Clunas, Chinese Furniture, London, 1988, no.48; another huanghuali table, 17th century, is illustrated by Chen Zengbi, Central Academy of Arts and Crafts: Illustrations of collections , vol.2, Beijing, 1994, no.35. See another similar but larger example, early Qing dynasty, in the Qing Court Collection, illustrated in The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum: Furniture of the Ming and Qing Dynasties (I), Hong Kong, 2002, no.97, p.114.

    條桌黃花梨製,桌面打槽平鑲獨板面心,桌面狹長,下設三根穿帶支撐,窄束腰,細牙條。四腿間安羅鍋枨。供肩直腿,內翻馬蹄足。整體造像屬明式風格,惟四足內翻成馬蹄,意趣較晚,具清代風格。

    此條桌比例協調,造型優雅,乃自晚明以來最受推崇之經典樣式之一,後流行於歷代各朝。木匠通過精妙的榫卯拼接,結合束腰型桌形結構設計,以最簡潔的設計呈現出最優雅的線條。
