Description
Each with an open-carved back frame formed by a straight top rail rounding the corners to the back posts, set with an inset beaded border apron, the straight arms continuing down to form the front posts, the hard cane set within a rectangular frame, joined by stepped stretchers and the footrest.
The HuangHuaLi wood displays a dense hardwood and translucent shimmering surface with abstractly figured patterns appearing like ghost faces motif.

Dimension: 35-1/2"H x 25-1/8"L x 18-1/2"D(each)

LOT NOTES:

MEIGUI YI, or 'rose chairs', are the smallest of the standard chair designs in Chinese furniture, making them appropriate for both indoor and outdoor use. The T-scrolls and carved apron on the chairs are similar to a pair attributed to the early Kangxi period, illustrated in Robert Hatfield Ellsworth, Chinese Furniture: One Hundred and Three Examples from the Mimi and Raymond Hung Collection, Hong Kong, 2005, pl. 17. The present pair, however, is notable for the inclusion of the beaded apron and flanges under the arms. Another pair in the Dr. S. Y. Yip Collection of Classic Chinese Furniture, attributed to the 17th century, illustrated in Grace Wu Bruce, Dreams of Chu Tan Chamber and the Romance with HuangHuaLi Wood, Hong Kong 1991, pl. 6, is slightly more simplistic with straight uncarved aprons. A set of four with uncarved arched stretchers and vertical braces, from the Property of Barling of Mount Street, Ltd., was sold in these rooms, 2nd December 1992, lot 606.
