Chinese Folding Chair

Originally made for high dignitaries and the Imperial family, chairs such as this horseshoe-back armchair from China date to the late Qing Dynasty (1644-1912).
The chair is deceptively light. With broad horseshoe-shaped arms, the frame is red lacquered, the backing features a crosshatch pattern painted with gilt, and the arms and legs feature black metallic mounts with abstracted floral designs.
