About this item

Originating from the Shanxi province, circa 1880, this lovely pair of elm chairs are of a simple, classic 'yoke-back' design, featuring a slightly curved backrest with a protruding headrail. They are designed a little out of the ordinary in that the headrails are more stylised than normal - with a more pronounced 'S' shape towards each end giving them a more unusual and modern look.

Also, rather than being made from a single piece of wood, the back slats are formed from four curved, rounded posts. The design of the headrails is repeated on the front stretcher of each chair in a more delicate, elegant style, each one being supported by curved braces that flow down to meet the foot rest at the bottom.

Use in a hallway or living room as accent pieces allowing extra seating for unexpected visitors or add to a home office.

The price shown is for the pair of chairs.
