We are delighted to offer for auction this stunning pair of rare Qing Dynasty circa 1870 hand carved solid elm ebonised dragon and Lion Foo dog throne armchairs

Please note the delivery fee is just a guide, for an accurate quote please send me your postcode

A really rare an expertly hand carved pair, the detail is never ending and of the highest standard, there are many variations of these chairs, they were being made up until the 1950’s but by that time they were much simpler without the level of detail that these chairs have, this is one of the very early ones from around 1870

These are the all singing all dancing fully head to toe carved pieces, they look absolutely stunning from every angle and are actually quite comfortable to sit in

The condition is very good, we have deep cleaned hand condition waxed and hand polished them from top to bottom, the timber has a nice used patina
