Pair of Elm Southern Official Chairs
Shanxi, circa 1880
These stylish, elegant armchairs are in a 'Southern Official' style, with the arms continuing down to meet the seat on curved posts rather than extending out. The design is quite pure, with simple lines and perfect proportions. Along with the curved, narrow arm posts, the backrests are subtly curved for comfort and are each decorated with a circular long life symbol in carved relief. The original black lacquer finish is largely intact, with just signs of wear towards the front of each seat and on the foot rests. In a beautiful, classic Chinese design, the chairs would grace any interior. Sold as a pair, the price shown is for the two chairs.
