Intricate carvings of traditional Chinese calligraphy decorate the top panel of back splats of the chairs. The middle panel of the back splat is carved with "deer under cypress" tree design. Both arms and back splats of the chairs are crafted with deep curves. The front openings underneath the seats are intricately carved as well.
