Tibetan Prayer Desk - Flowers, Birds and Clouds
We are currently adjusting our inventory. Please feel free to call us for pricing and availibility.
A beautifully painted Tibetan prayer table - Circa 19th century. This piece is decorated with a floral motif with birds on three sides. A second cloud motif is present on three sides of the wooden skirt at the bottom of the table. A full length sliding drawer is present on the left.
These desks were used by Tibetan llamas to hold the ritiual instruments used in their daily prayers. Painted with crushed mineral pigments, these pieces are bright and vibrant with a thick patina and rich smell caused by years of yak-butter incense burning nearby.
Some minor imperfections may be present, such as smoke residue, scratches or dents. These imperfections are to be expected given the age of the table and it's daily use, and serve to further enhance the personality of the piece.
