Antique Chinese High Back Chairs (5886) (Pair), Circa 1800-1849
- This style of chairs 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. Relief carvings of traditional Chinese calligraphy of "double longevity" decorate the back splats of the chairs. The back of the chairs are crafted with deep curves. The front openings underneath the seats are uniquely carved into "arch" shape. Made from elm wood, the chairs are very solid and kept in excellent condition. Original patina and wear. Circa early of 19th century.
