Pair of 1920s English Japanned Armchairs with Chinoiserie Decoration

On Hold
US$5,991.17per set


Pair of English 1920s Japanned armchairs with chinoiserie decoration, caned sides and back. This chic pair of armchairs have wonderful saffron velvet upholstery with an additional small cushion for support. The armchairs would work well in both a traditional and more contemporary setting. The word Japanning originated back in the 17th century. It was used to describe a lacquer finish which was created as a European imitation of the original Asian (mostly Oriental Chinese and Japanese) lacquer-work.
