Antique chairs,Chinese furniture. Fantastic pair of antique Chinese chairs. This matched pair of period Chinese chairs are in excellent original condition and date from the mid 19th century. They are made of elm wood ("This example represents a more normal proportioning of the more official cap type of arm chairs. All their vertical lines bend inward as they rise, lightening the design; and the splay of the front legs is greater than that of the back. The projecting top rail helped to accommodate an ample width of fabric, which in earlier days was commonly thrown over both back and seat and allowed to descend toward the floor. In such cases, a footstool was often further provided. Thus equipped, the chair became a seat of honor fitting it for the use of some dignitary." See "Chinese Household Furniture" by George N.
