Description

A coffee table hand-carved out of one complete Azalea root. This Chinese 1990s coffee table was hand-carved from a single azalea root and lacquered to its reddish brown hue. This table showcases an intricate base displaying the organic aspect of the azalea root. The top rim also features some carved traces of the wood. The piece features a reddish-brown lacquer that enhances the wood grain and adds brightness.

 

This coffee table is a great example of root carving, something China excelled at during the 20th century. This Chinese 1990s hand-carved lacquered azalea root coffee table would be an impressive and uncommon item in most rooms, especially in a living room, but could be perfectly placed outdoors as well, thanks to its robustness.
