Chinese Antique Ming Dynasty Style Scholar's Lamp-Hanger Chair with Rattan Inset



A Chinese Ming Dynasty style antique scholar's chair from the early 20th century, with inset rattan back splat and seat. Born in China during the early years of the 20th century, this exquisite wooden armchair features an elegant tall back, topped with a curving rail. The central section presents a sinuous splat with rattan inset. Two sinuous open arms are sitting on the rectangular rattan seat with wooden frame, while the armchair is raised on four straight legs connected to one another through side stretchers and is accented by a delicately carved skirt. The perfect contrast of shapes of the upper section, opposing the sinuous Silhouette of the splat and the convex lines of the lateral supports, combined with a lovely patina will make this early 20th century Ming style Chinese scholar's lamp-hanger armchair with light patina a perfect decorative accent for any home, perhaps placed in an office, foyer, bedroom or living room.
