This bent wood chair was created over a century ago in Northern China by moistening, bending and heating willow to form its desired shape. It is beautifully carved with auspicious flowers and is considerably smaller than most roundback chairs. As the height and size of chairs were traditionally marks of status in Chinese culture, it is likely that this artful chair was used informally, possibly on a boat or even by children.
