* Besides the period after Vatican II, of course.

One post-Trent "smashing" that comes to mind is of the rood screens in Catholic churches. The Tridentine fathers arguably caved in to the Protestant argument that the screens obscured the laity's view of the altar, and subsequently almost all rood screens in Catholic-dom vanished. There are ironically probably more that were preserved by the Church of England.

As for altars themselves, well..... there are some churches dating to the medieval era which have Baroque-ish altars. I believe Notre Dame de Paris is one example. One might wonder: what happened to the original altar? I can't say for sure, though. It's just speculation. This isn't comparable to the scale of post-Vatican II wreckovations, though.
