Cross Legged Armchair, Black Lacquer - Clearance
This lovely black lacquer chair has the same 'S' shaped legs forming an hourglass shape at the front and back, as well as a slightly curved seat with a rattan inlay, it goes perfectly with our cross legged desk or can be used separately for occasional seating. Based on the classic Chinese horseshoe armchair but in a more colonial style, the middle backrest is carved in relief with a 'ruyi', symbolising prosperity, while above this is a lotus flower to denote long life and wealth. The narrow spindles either side that support the curved backrest are not often seen in Chinese furniture - although they did appear on chairs in the late Qing dynasty, specifically on smaller pieces known as rose chairs, used normally in ladies' quarters.
Please note the item is reduced as it was produced as a sample with a a black lacquered rattan seat rather than the usual pale finish. The last three images shown below are of the actual item.
