Pair of Officials Hat Chairs

This pair of chairs has wonderful proportions. Note the extended yoke at the top of the back. It compliments the turned out ends of the arm rests. Theses chairs have no ornamentation save for a pair of facing dragons. The dragons suggest protection for the person sitting in the chair. Note also the ever present foot rest. Chinese floors are often damp, and the footrest comes in handy. These chairs are simply beautiful. The chairs have replaced seats, and are quite comfortable.
