Chinese Qing Dynasty 19th Century Armchair with Carved Medallion, Sold Each
Two Chinese Qing Dynasty period carved wooden armchairs from the 19th century with hand-carved medallion, priced and sold each. Created in China during the Qing Dynasty period, each chair features a carved splat adorned with a hand-carved oval medallion depicting a peony and a bird, perhaps a crane, among openwork foliages.
These auspicious patterns are surmounted by a jewelry-like motif. The chairs follow the Chinese tradition with a carved wooden base and a woven rattan seat and are strengthened with side stretchers. Thanks to their elegant carvings, these two Chinese 19th century antique chairs with hand-carved medallions will make for a lovely addition to any home, perhaps displayed in a foyer or living room.
