This beautiful arm chair is a great example of style and craftsmanship.
The curved back splat has a relief carving of floral designs. The Top rail curves up into 4 peaks and is contained, meaning it does not protrude beyond the side rails. This style is often referred to Southern Official’s style arm chairs. Their are relief carved aprons inside the intersection of the top and side rails.
The arms, along with the front posts and the side posts have graceful curved lines.
The inset panel style seat has a rounded molded detail on the frame edge. There is also a molded design where the frame meets the panel.
There is a fancy shaped relief carved apron under the front seat and down the legs. The sides have simpler aprons and a straight stretcher.
Much of the original tree lacquer finish has worn off, but this chair has a wonderful patina and is very sturdy.
As noted below the seat height is 21″. We often have customers who want to use an antique Chinese table as a desk, but the height is usually several inched higher than typical desks. Using a chair like this, which is also several inched higher than a standard chair, with one of the Chinese tables makes a great combination. (be sure to check knee clearance first).
