Teak table from the Chinese restaurant Yuen Faung Low (John's Place)
Square probably teak table has ornate floral and bird mother-of-pearl marquetry on its legs, apron and the frame around the off-white marble slab top. The square columnar legs terminate in block feet; the apron features some some Chinese ideograms in its inlay. The underside of table and the interior of the legs have chalk inscriptions of what appear to be Roman numerals and Chinese ideograms. Table was used at Yuen Faung Low [or "John's Place"] in Minneapolis, Minn., between 1945 and 1960. See also postcard photograph 1993.7.5 of the restaurant interior.
