Description

A rustic Chinese Cantonese hand-crafted seat made from a tree trunk from the early 20th century with curving back, brown patina and hidden compartment under the seat. Created in the Southern region of Canton (nowadays known as Guangzhou) in the early years of the 20th century, this unusual chair attracts our immediate attention with its rustic appeal and dark color. Hand-carved from an actual tree trunk, the chair presents a nicely curving back connected to two simple arms.


The round wooden seat showcases a panel that can be removed to reveal a convenient hidden compartment. The base is solid with age cracks and a hole on the side expected to be found on such a piece. With its great character and nicely varnished brown patina, this early 20th century Chinese tree trunk chair from Canton will make for a charming addition to any room, particularly placed in a country home or mountain cabin!
