A Chinese late Qing Dynasty period wooden armchair from the early 20th century, with carved splat, sinuous arms, rattan seat and pierced pillar strut decorated apron. This antique piece showcases a beautiful fusion of form and function, making it an exquisite addition to any home or collection.


The eye is immediately drawn to the chair's carved splat, featuring low relief calligraphy nestled within a medallion, a symbol of prestige and importance in Chinese culture. Below, bamboo motifs lend an air of tranquility, reflecting the chair's naturalistic inspiration.


The chair's sinuous arms, reminiscent of the fluid lines of traditional Chinese architecture, lead to a comfortable, inset woven rattan seat, reflecting the practical craftsmanship of the period. Below, a pierced apron adorned with pillar strut motifs introduces a structural elegance, while humpback stretchers on all sides enhance the chair's visual interest.


Standing on straight cylindrical legs and low stretchers, this chair is a striking representation of Chinese design principles, showcasing a balance of line, form, and space. Its rich patina adds to the chair's charm, highlighting the intricate carving and the natural beauty of the wood.


This Qing Dynasty wooden armchair is more than just a piece of furniture - it's a testament to the sophistication and depth of Chinese art and culture. If you are looking to incorporate a touch of historic elegance into your decor, this chair is a captivating choice.
