I am selling my Vintage Chinese Emperor Throne chair that is made from Rosewood and is beautifully carved with two dragons.
This chair is c1830 and was brought to this country in the early 1920's by the late owners family, who lived in the New Forest.
The two dragons bodies merge and meet, and form the arms, legs and supporting back of the chair. One dragon has his eyes open, and the other dragon has his eyes closed, representing the Yin and Yang of the universe (see photos).
The chair has the normal signs of age, and the patina on the wood has been rubbed in some places through usage over the many years, and it is very sturdy and comfortable to sit in. The Chinese believe that great luck will come to the owner of any items that symbolise the dragon.
If you are a collector of rare Chinese items, this would be a great investment.
The chair measures L 26 inches x W 18 inches x H 34 inches
This magnificent chair is now out of store and available for viewing to serious buyers, at the family residence in Southampton by appointment.
I am open to sensible offers or exchange for gold jewellery/watches or a combination of both.
*This chair can be packed professionally & shipped to anywhere in the UK at buyers cost via TNT, tracked and insured. Alternatively for any buyers outside the UK you could arrange your own collection if preferred, or I will quote you for a "Door to Door" service via courier excluding any duties/taxes payable in the country of importation.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Please note that this price may NOT include delivery charges which the seller may charge extra for.
