Pair of Grey Lacquer Yoke-Back Chairs
Shandong, circa 1900
These lovely chairs each have a taller, more elongated curved backrest than most similar pairs, giving them a more elegant, slightly more contemporary look that would fit well into many a modern home. They are in a classic 'Yoke-Back' style that was common in China for centuries, but have been refreshed with a gorgeous, distressed grey lacquer. The backrest on each chair includes an auspicious 'ruyi' symbol in carved relief and the footrest and stretchers step upwards from front to back to further indicate the high status of the owner.
Sold as a pair, the price shown is for the two chairs.
