We are very proud to offer a fantastic chair, although chair is a misnomer, as it is really a Throne Chair made for an Emperor of Japan during the short-lived Meiji Period 1868-1912. This important magnificent Throne Chair looks red in color & might well be rose-wood or red mulberry, but I do not know for certain. The Throne is 70 inches high x 28 inches across arms. My darling husband of 41 years Dr. Curry (retired) is standing next to it, & he is just under 6 feet tall. The carvings are swirling dragons everywhere. The dragons have ivory in-set eyes. This piece of furniture is VERY impressive. It is knock-your-socks off impressive. People who have seen it in my several homes, over the years, have just gone wild over it! It would really look good in a Corporate Office, Hotel Lobby, or Museum, or like us, in a home. It is in original & excellent condition with only a couple of small losses. The uppermost top of Throne comes off. It is held by screws in back. We bought it in San Francisco, Calif. about 40 years ago. It is just amazing & unique! We accept Paypal only. All sales Final on this piece. Professional shippers must be gotten for transportation of this very heavy Throne (70 lbs+?). Buyer pays all shipping costs. We are no longer able to sell Ivory to anyone in California. The state of Calif. passed a law in April 2012 banning the sale of ALL Ivory in Calif., even the antique Ivory. In the near future, I think this law will be over the entire USA.. & the World. If you want to buy Ivory You should do so while it is still "legal". I am lowering price as it will soon be impossible to list Ivory.
