Pair of Willow Horseshoe Armchairs
Shanxi, China, circa 1880
Originally finished in black lacquer, this charming pair of horseshoe armchairs have worn through time to show the paler wood beneath. The curved backs and arms are made from a single piece of wood, with the flexible willow being steamed and bent into shape. There are relief carvings showing various symbols for good luck and prosperity on the back splats. Sold as a pair, the price shown is for the two chairs.
