Oriental Furniture - Altar Tables
At Orientique you will find a wide range of Chinese wall tables and Chinese Altar tables in authentic designs with a history and traditional usages. These types of tables were used in ancient Asia to make offerings to spirits, gods, and ancestors. These Chinese altars are made from solid wood and are therefore extremely strong. They are finished by hand, which gives the altar a beautiful appearance. In China, these types of tables are used specifically in temples to make sacrifices to, for example, Confucius, the most famous philosopher of China, but it also happens regularly that people have a sacrificial table at home for their ancestors. Nowadays in western countries, it isn't used as a offering table anymore, it is however widely used as a place to showcast decorations.
Nice to decorate a table like this with incense holders, Buddha statues or a statue of, for example, Confucius!
