About this item

This simple, nicely proportioned, pair of elegant side chairs are in a traditional 'Southern Official' style with the pronounced, curved top rails meeting the curved side posts rather than extending over them.

Originating from Shanxi, circa 1880, these delightful chairs with comfortable curved backrests are seen on almost all Chinese chairs of this period, with single stretchers and a curved front apron. The old black finish has worn revealing the attractive pattern on the elm wood underneath, making these a beautiful pair of chairs that will compliment a modern home.

One of the chairs has an old split in the backrest, which has been repaired at some stage long ago with an iron bracket.

Sold as a pair, the price shown is for both chairs.
