Zitan wood is the main material for this throne. The "waist" (suoyao, the contracted part of a piece of Chinese furniture) under the seat is embellished with a thin belt of relief carving. Below it are "swelling aprons" and arched "shoulders" down to the cabriole legs standing on floor stretchers. The aprons are carved with Western scrolling grass and traditional Chinese kui-dragon motifs. The frames of the armrests run to the back panel. The throne is encircled with carved panels on both sides and at the back. The back panel is inlaid with boxwood carvings.
