What does this mean?

This is an antique to vintage, early 20th century, sideboard type table that is done in a black lacquered style surface paint and constructed with mortise and tenon and finger joinery. Based on the form, color, joinery, light weight of the wood and overall aesthetic, this is likely an Asian, possibly Chinese, altar table. The only elements that do not 'jive', so to speak, are the drawer handle pulls, which may have been replaced at some time (check the inside of the drawer for evidence of the handles possibly having been changed. This is a clean, simple form which is desirable for decor in modern homes of today. The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail 'asking prices' can be higher and vary.

Please add images of a corner of a drawer so I can see the joinery and the areas that are glued with fabric that you mention.

Does the wood feel particularly light in weight?

Danny jones May 16, 01:45 UTC

Yes it is light in weight but very sturdy

Added a couple of additional images that show some seams in the back where glue and fabric were used.
