Pair of Chinese Celadon Garden Seats

About

WHY WE LOVE IT: The shape! The color! We are delighted to offer this pair of Chinese celadon garden seats. These sleek hexagonal garden seats are covered in a light green glaze with a jade-like luster. The soft celadon color evokes the liveliness of bamboo, a popular plant viewed as a metaphor of perseverance. On each of the six sides of the seat is a design of raised bamboo stalks. The top of each seat is decorated with a single pierced coin decoration, a beloved traditional motif symbolizing wealth and abundance. It is frequently seen on garden seats since the Ming dynasty. The 20th century artist has simplified this ancient form to make pieces that would also be at home in a contemporary setting. The streamlined shape recalls the style of Art Deco or Mid Century Modernism - as does the color. While originally made as outdoor seats, today this pair of garden seats would be used inside a living room. Background of Chinese celadon glazed ceramics: The beginnings of the Chinese celadon tradition can be traced to the Yue kilins in Zhejiang Province in south China in the fourth century. The use of iron oxide to create green glazes then spread to north China in the sixth century. The tradition of using these green glazes disappeared in China in the fourteenth with the rise in popularity of blue and white wares. It was revived in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, and has continued into the modern era. Dimensions: 19 inches tall x 12 inches across Condition: Excellent Price: $7,800 for the pair .
