Our Fine Asian Works of Art sale in San Francisco on December 17 features a rare pair of jade-mounted zitan corner chairs from the 19th Century.
Although commonly composed of two back splats set between three baluster styles, few corner chairs are identical. This pair, set with elegant white jade bi discs in its superbly carved splats, appear to be unique.
This form has its basis in Europe, notably in mid-18th century George II mahogany corner chairs. Also named "roundabout chairs" or writing chairs, one origin may be the three-cornered Elizabethan Varangian chairs of the 13th century. By the mid-18th century, Queen Anne and Chippendale examples were produced in America.
Viewings are now open - join us in our San Francisco gallery through the weekend to view these exceptional pieces.
