Unusual Chinese Altar Table

Circa early 1800, Gansu province.
Unusual Chinese black lacquered altar table. 

Great carving and patina.

It's very long: 115 3/4"L x 17 1/2"D x 35"H

Elm wood. Some candle and incense burns on top. 

I personally like this table a lot. It's a little bit awkward/unique. But I do think the arrangement of the carvings are very nice. I think (in fact I know) it's very hard to sell this piece. Somehow I just love it. In the right setting, this table will be so stunning!
