ANTIQUE RED ARM CHAIR
This chair has the most beautiful original red lacquer finish. Its mottled appearance enhanced by natural, time-achieved patina gives it a muted yet splendid look that is hard to look away from.
A solid single board makes the seat. A drawer under the seat provided convenience and practicality. As such a chair was used by the ladies, the drawer offered storage of handkerchiefs and keys. The back splat has a design that resembles a stylized scepter the Empress would hold, a symbol of prosperity and prestige.
At once elegant and bold, its beautiful color and strong lines make this a very piece piece.
