An extremely rare matching set of a drum table and five matching stools made of Jichi wood or "Chicken Wing Wood" with a very large one piece burl wood top on the table and stools with a bamboo design.
Bamboo carved furniture from very expensive wood is very rare as bamboo is a very inexpensive wood and to carve that bamboo design in the expensive wood is a sign of reverse snobbery reserved for the very rich at that time. Bamboo, though, also represents longevity as it remains green during the winter.
Age: Mid 19th century. Size: Table: D.Top 77cm. H. 80 cm. W. 90cm. Stools: D.Top 32.5cm. H. 46.5cm. W. 42cm. For inches divide the cm.by 2.54.
Condition: No repairs. Some old small worm hole repairs in the burl wood tops of some stools.
