Pair of Chinese Pale Elm Horseshoe Armchairs

Ref: A-36-0009

These antique Chinese occasional chairs are known as horseshoe chairs, named for their curved, downward sweeping crest rail and arms. They are crafted with a dramatically swayed back splat and inset seat with a scalloped apron. It sits atop square legs that are joined by cross stretchers. Elm wood is often employed in antique Chinese furniture for its durability and attractive wide grain.
