A pair of Chinese Qing Dynasty period dark lacquered yoke back armchairs from the 19th century, with carved splats and rattan seats. Created in China during the Qing Dynasty, each of this pair of armchairs features a tall back, topped with a curving rail. The central section presents a concave-shaped pierced splat, carved with various animals.The rectangular seat with woven rattan inset, is resting on four straight legs connected to one another through plain side stretchers and a delicately carved apron.
