Pair of Officials Hat Chairs #2

These chairs are different from other hat chairs in that the ends of the top rails are shaped as deer horns. The deer, of course, symbolizes longevity, but deer horns find a place in Chinese medicine and the supposed properties of ingested deer horn include longevity. The horn motif is also found at the ends of the arms. Without a doubt, the most unusual Officials Hat Chairs I have ever owned.
