The term "altar table" denotes a piece that was originally intended to be used as a home altar for either an ancestor or Buddha shrine. We would characterize a shorter altar table as a "hall table". A longer (than say 50") altar table would fall within our "console table' category. It's quite common for an older altar table to have burn marks on the top from candles, oil lamps, etc. Altar tables may have drawers.
