This lovely Pair of Carved Horseshoe Armchairs would make a stunning addition to your space. These wonderful chairs are over 200 years old and were originally from Shanxi, a central Chinese province.

The chairs are made from sturdy elm and showcases a lovely wood grain which can be seen through the faded original black lacquer finish. Designed with a rounded arm, it also features rounded back seats which were a distinct element of the furniture back in the day. Oftentimes, these were deemed special chairs to be used by VIPs or special people with status during ceremonies.

Like similar chairs of the period, these chairs are also adorned with a central back panel with cut out carvings. This pair depicts a Chinese unicorn which were believed to be a bringer of good luck and prosperity. There's also an inverted 'ruyi' which means power and status.

These are sold as a pair hence, the price shown is for both.
