Gorgeous Chinese hardwood chair/throne with carved and pierced dragons as armrests, pierced and carved back with smoke clouds around two dragons on either side of a large, solid central carving of robed noblemen and women standing upon a bridge, with interesting plant life around them. Two posts with squared spiral carvings sits on either side of the back, topped with a small carved guardian lion/foo dog holding a xiu qiu ball. The bottom of the seat is bordered with carved panels depicting lucky bats with flowerlike designs carved around them. Each leg is shaped like lions' feet clutching a ball, topped with carvings of a taotie or ogre motif without a lower jaw area. Full of vibrant detail with very skillful carving work. circa 1920s-30s Size: 37.5" height, 28.75" width, 22.25" depth
