Elm Horseshoe Armchair
Shanxi, circa 1900
This classic horseshoe chair would undoubtedly have been made as one of a pair. It has the beautiful curved lines that distinguish this traditional design - one used originally for the most important house guests. The chair is made from elm wood, and the once dark finish has worn on the seat, backrest and footrest in particular to give a wonderful, aged patina. The curved back splat is simply decorated in relief carving with a 'ruyi' symbol to represent long life and good fortune - the area surrounding it also worn by use.
