Inkstone Table硯床

Description

Inkstone tables were used to organize stationery items, such as paper, brushes, ink sticks, inkstones, and water droppers. The body of this inkstone table is wood, but the outer layer is bamboo. Symbolizing the noble integrity of the literati, bamboo was a popular material for wood furniture. With its firm, smooth texture and attractive gloss, the bamboo conveys a pleasant sense of simplicity and sturdiness.
