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 deeply carved floral motif on the front, with a matching painted pattern on the sides and front skirt. There is an open shelf in the back of the piece.
These prayer tables 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.
