Pair of Chinese Huanghuali Yoke Back Scholar's Hat Chairs

$10,500 AUD

Tax included.

A scarce pair of mid 20th century, Chinese huanghuali hardwood chairs with a rich patina. The curved splat is topped with a scholar's hat crest leading down to stretchered legs featuring curved aprons to the front and sides.

The Chinese term huanghuali literally means "yellow flowering pear" wood. It is a member of the rosewood family and is botanically classified as Dalbergia odorifera.

The finest huanghuali has a translucent shimmering surface with abstractly figured patterns that delight the eye--those appearing like ghost faces were highly prized. The color can range from reddish-brown to the golden-yellow present in this fine example.

Dimensions - 47cm H x 42cm D x 59cm W
