Pair of unique Horseshoe-back Chinese Wooden Chairs


Beautiful pair of unique black lacquered horseshoe-back Chinese chairs from the 20th century. Sold as a pair. These chairs are a powerful symbol of Chinese culture and were reffered to as the "Grand Tutor Chairs". Their role in society was largely ceremonial, they were seats of honor. Their generous proportions are exaggerated by the semicircular armrests and it remains one of the most confortable chairs ever designed in China. Please note - this item will be shipped from our New York City studio.
