Chinese Ming Dynasty Style Elm Wedding Chair with Curving Back and Carved Splat



A Chinese Ming Dynasty style elmwood wedding chair from the early 20th century, with carved panels on the splat, curved arms, and gooseneck front posts. Born in China during the early years of the 20th century, this antique elm wedding chair features a curving back, adorned with a splat carved in low-relief with panels presenting mystical animals, the lower one being pierced. The chair is flanked with curving open arms wit gooseneck post resting on a planked wooden seat. Created for the bride to be lead to meet her future husband, this armchair is raised on four straight legs with arch-shaped apron, the ensemble being strengthened by side stretchers. With its charming Silhouette and lovely elm patina, this Chinese Ming style armchair will be a great decorative accent for any home, perhaps placed in a foyer, living room or office.
