19th Century Chinese Moongazing Chair with Upturned Arms

$1,780

About

This 19th century moongazing chair from northern China was constructed by a Provincial carpenter who heated and bent willow wood into the rounded and upturned shape of the chair's arms. This simple, sculptural form hearkens back to Classic Chinese furniture design, but remains unique to the artisan's personal aesthetic with unusual upturned arms. Beautifully worn from use, time has added a rich patina to the chair's original finish. Additional Dimensions: Seat height: 19".
