SOLD AS PAIR
This beautiful pair of high back arm chairs are a great example of style and craftsmanship.
The back splat has gentle curves with circular pierced carved 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 fancy aprons inside the intersection of the top and side rails with a beaded detail on the edges.
The arms, along with the front goose neck posts and the side posts have graceful curved lines.
The seat is an inset flat panel style. The frame around the panel has a curved front edge with a molded detail on the top and bottom. There is also a molded design where the frame meets the flat panel.
There is a fancy shaped relief apron under the front seat and down the legs. The apron has a bead detail around edges. The sides have much simpler aprons and single straight stretchers. The back has double straight stretchers.
These unusual pair of antique Chinese chairs have a much more natural finish than most of the other chairs we carry. There has been some repairs and re-gluing on the upper part of the backs, although they are fairly inconspicuous. Don’t hesitate to ask for additional photos if needed.
