About this item

This style of chair is a smaller, slightly less refined version of the horseshoe armchairs that were used for important house members and their guests in Chinese homes. In this case the distinctive horseshoe shaped back, as well as the legs, were made by bending and shaping a pliable wood such as willow, rather than by using complex joinery. The curved backrest on each chair is decorated in carved relief with symbols that include a Chinese unicorn and a 'ruyi' sceptre. Sold as a pair, the price shown is for the two chairs.
