Armchair with Four Protruding Ends

LargeMediumSmallPrinter
< 1 >
Period: Ming dynasty (1368-1644)
Medium: huali wood
Date: undated

\This armchair is free of all unnecessary decoration. The headrest bends gracefully at both ends. At the joints between the gooseneck front posts and the armrests are corner aprons designed to augment the stability.   
  The armchair is utterly simple, but its sleek design demonstrates a tasteful and dignified style, which is typical of furniture of the Ming dynasty.
