Antique Chinese Arm Chairs (5467) (Pair), High Back, Circa 1800-1849
This style of chair is known as "official's hat chair" because the projections over the rear stiles resemble the knobs on the black hats once worn by high-ranking administrators in Ming Dynasty. These chairs are high back and handcrafted and structured with wooden pegs and tenon structure, which is the very traditional craftsmanship for furniture making in ancient China. Intricate carvings of Chinese calligraphy "lotus" and "deer under plum tree" design decorate the back splats of the chairs. The carvings on the chairs are very delicate and three-dimensional. Both arms and back splat of the chairs are crafted with deep curves. The front openings underneath the seats are carved with unique designs and into "arch" shape. Made from Elm Wood with beautiful wood grain, the chairs are very solid and kept in excellent condition. Original patina and wear. Circa early of 19th century.
