Very few examples of Kang tables with openwork waists appear to have been published. An example from the Dr S.Y. Yip Collection was illustrated by Grace Wu Bruce, Dreams of the Chu Tan Chamber and the Romance with Huanghuali Wood, Hong Kong, 1991, p. 96, no. 35. Another comparable example, somewhat later in date than the present example, with similar bamboo struts and conjoined rings forming the openwork waist was sold at Christie's New York, 24-25th March 2011, lot 1371. Kang tables with dragons adorning the aprons appear to be much rarer than those with the more commonly seen decoration of scrolling vines.
